If the stupid tree huger groups don't let us manage them again this year, and if I new for sure I was not going to get caught, yup in a hart beat. If we get a hunting season, then that would be a big no.

So your asking who on here will admit that they would break the law? Funny how some could precieve that as ok to do but would come unglued about someone shooting a deer illegally.

Not much difference between shooting an animal illegally and stealing a tree stand while trespassing.

I wouldn't kill it just to kill it. Now if I felt there was a threat of some sort to me or my children...then I'd kill it without hesitation. Natures laws supercede man's laws IMO.

You need to live and hunt an area where they are at, and watch then destroy the herds. while being told you can't do any thing about it. Not to mention they are now coming into people's propety to stalk animals, I mean like right out side there house kinda coming into their property. I know of several cases where people have had then inside thier yard where their kids wait for the school bus.

I don't mean to horn in,but i stole a tree stand when i was 18.....that was 35yrs ago when i was stupid and uncaring.......i've grown up since than and have respect for other peoples property and have respect for wild life.Some never grow up and learn the true meaning of sportsmanship and being ethical.

Why? If you stumbled upon me, would you kill me knowing you wouldnt get caught??
After reading that article about the wolves taking the herd of elk in yellowstone from 16,000 to 6,000, it kind of makes me wonder, as an elk hunter, if confronted with that situation what I would do. I still am not sure. I love my elk hunting and we dont have enough elk here in Oregon to sustain a drop in elk population like that.

Am I asking is someone would do something illegal hypothetically? Yes. Can you get prosecuted for answering? No.

As for the guy who asked if I would kill him if I knew I wouldnt get caught.....:eek:t:

No I wouldn't. If it were acting aggressive or I felt like it was going to attack, it could kiss it's butt goodbye. If it was close, but acting non-threatening, then no. I'd take pictures and check it out, but I wouldn't shoot it.

If I had a wolf tag, that'd be a different story.:D

In a heart beat.

The same as trespassing and stealing tree stands? Hardly. Under the same logic you could say speeding is just like killing a person.

I have seen what wolves do. I am strongly against all the tree hugging left wing legislation that goes into protecting them and putting them here in the first place. My cousins have had their cattle killed by wolves. Their best cow dog was killed by wolves while chained TO THEIR FRONT PORCH.

Sportsmen worked for decades to manage and balance our animal populations and herds. A couple of liberals with hair brained ideas thought it would be a good idea to bring back cute little wolves. "Oh, they'll stay in the park" they said. Yeah right.

Wolf packs have now spread like wildfire and are ripping up our deer and elk herds, not to mention our sheep and cows. I have seen a wolf in Utah while hunting elk, and they aren't even supposed to be here. They are an apex predator and they are taking a huge toll.

An area I hunted last year in Idaho used to have elk bugling on a consistent basis. Now the elk will not make a peep because of the wolves.

I have a hunch that most of you that wouldn't harm a wolf haven't seen your hunting grounds devastated by them or your animals killed by them.

Don't cry to me that killing a wolf is the same as poaching an elk or a deer. It's not.

No. And to respond here on a public site that you would illegally kill any animal without just cause, then you are just asking for more anti hunting support. Legal hunting, such as in AK, no problem, in areas where protected, you're a fool.
