The cost of wolf management

Tony Mayer, I assume you are a hunter and Twin Falls being your residence, you probably have hunted in the Wood River Valley. This past hunting season I talked with many people who hunted and saw very little or absolutely no deer, and elk were almost impossible to find.

After living and hunting in the Wood River Valley for 30 years I have never seen hunting this bad. What was the reason for this? Try wolves.

In the past, money for management of this animal was not part of the system. Tony, do you have any idea how much money goes to this animal out of hunting fees? Maybe you should contact the wolf people and get them to pay for this management. Right now they take but don't contribute. How fair is that?

Right now there are four packs that I know of and probably two others.
