    There are a few small herds of buffalo, now in existence, in a few areas. Of course no more run wild, because most all of the land is owned private property or National Government land. I agree with you..... it would be KOOOOL!
    Thanks,

    Wolves used to be very far away, and rarely ever seen, even by the most ardent outdoorsman. Last summer my mother ran into one on the way to the outhouse, about twenty yards from the front door of the cabin. A friend of the family that works for fish and game has watched wolves take down the most POWERFUL bulls of the caribou herds, not wasting thier time with the sick, old, or young. and then moving on to kill more caribou before ever eating the first one they took. Doesn't that sounds just slightly imbalanced?

    I guess the part that chaps my cookies the worst are these East coast do-gooders petitioning the state, sending up thier high priced attorneys, etc. when they've never ever freakin' BEEN to most of these game areas, some of them have never even been to the Anchorage International Freakin' Airport!! And they're gonna tell ALASKANS how to manage our wildlife? (incidentally, I also feel the same about anti-ANWR groups) Please, come to Alaska, catch a fish, hike a trail, climb a mountain, canoe a river...have the time of your life...whatever, but let us make our damn laws and regulate ourselves!!

    Good thinking.... NOW, ya are making sense! You and Munk got it about right!
    Strange feeling though, for me, to kill something and not eat it! Wolf stew anyone?
    Maybe not!

    The thing is, I know from his perspective Hawkwind is absolutely correct. The situation is central Europe with their current economic problems is not helpful to animals at all, and many species are just being hunted out completely by any slob hunter with a gun who wants enough money to buy a drink. The situation in Alaska is quite a bit different I think.

    I have read Jack London and Ernest Thompson Seton and Theodore Roosevelt and others, and although it is rare, wolves will attack humans if they are hungry enough, and although it is hoped that they will always go after the oldest and slowest animals that is also not always so. They will take whatever is offered to them, and if that's a healthy adult male that is what they will go after.

    Regards,

    What about them hockey players eh?
    ****************************************
    Yeah, "them hockey puckers" if they are all on strike and aren't working on the ice, being used to cold, the hockey players could all fly up to Alaska and help out with the wolf hunt! YEAH! Great idea!
    Good thinkin!

    If that makes someone angry enough to want me dead, I dont care. Whatever floats their warped little boat.

    The fact is you cant really tell my position from that post. I might be a murderous barbarian, or I might have be a sarcastic treehugger. Three words isnt enough for a reasonable person to decide that a person should kill themselves. - Jebadiah Smith :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    We agree.... again! Humor is good! Just stay away from those mirrors and ya won't have to worry about anything much...... WELL, not a lot of worrying anyway! :) :) :) :)

    My self-censoring feature works so rarely though. I think I'll keep my thoughts on the issue to myself.

    Swashtar is right, the Movie, "Never Cry Wolf" Dead Wrong. In it, we learned wolves only eat the weak, sick and young. Not true. It is also not true they only kill for food- wolves kill for sport. I know that's a shock to some. They go on these killings frenzies-there's even a scientific name for it- and leave many animals down they do not eat. Wolves also traditionally kill off an area and move on. That is why modern controls must be used- we no longer have the open expanses of wilderness to support these behaviors.

    I don't know the specifics in Alaska any longer, it's been a awhile since I read of the problem, but I'm still betting the wolves are controlled so they do not damage the Caribou herds irretrievably.

    Ibear's a nicer guy than I am. WIth permit in hand, I'd still wouldn't mind culling wolves. I even went prarrie dog hunting once or twice.

    AWWWWW, darn! Well I see ya are exercising the 1st Amendment. That is your freedom to act, or refrain from the same! I refrained once! Just once! A long time ago, NOW I speak the speech.... trippingly on the tongue!

    Oh well, if I can't entice your sensibilities further than maybe we can partake of the chalice of wisdom and mirth on another day to your liking! BUT, I realize......... it is your choice!

    Drink the drink I pray thee..... loosen your tongue it will! :D

    We gotta be able to find common sense.

    That said, I think it would be fun to shoot a wolf from a plane in Alaska. I heard they used to use M1 Garands. Actually, I wouldn't mind pulling the switch myself on some waiting in Death Row in Ca. I like the wolves a whole lot better. They don't 'deserve' to die. - munk the menace
    **************************************************
    HeeeeHaw... there ya go with your killing ways! We gotta be able to find common sense. I never knew a killer I didn't like! No wonder I like your style! Ya gotta appreciate a killer, now and then!

    It is strange to think of killing an animal not for food. :grumpy:
    ********************************************
    You said it! You killers are all alike! Pun intended! :) :) :)
    Thanks,

    ibear--I can't quite make up my mind about you. I'm not sure if you're trolling or just trying to start up a conversation.

    Killing is nothing to be ashamed of. Nothing to be proud of either.

    I am neither and never both and I have never been accused of being a troll! A troll I am definitely NOT! So, if my other choice is starting up a conversation, then that is exactly what I am doing!

    Lets start! DATA: Munk is my long time buddy! We are close friends and sometimes play with each others heads a bit! For clarification, I never thought that Munk was a killer and I appreciate Munk's view points and almost always agree with his reasoning if not always with his conclusions. We do differ a bit on some things, but like yourself, can appreciate many different viewpoints, that may differ from our own. Like Munk, I like to delve into various different subjects and usually know something of what I speak. Yes....... I think so... anyway!

    My very favorite subject: I especially appreciate the relative importance, to all American free people, of the first ten Amendments to our Constitution and sometimes like to expound on that subject.... a lot! Other than that, as a negative issue, I have no other claim to fame! Be of good cheer, I am here!
    Thanks,
