Balance is the key in the deer/wolf populations; unfortunately just like politics, it comes down to blue and red states. Blue and red states are determined by if you hear your neighbor snoring or not. Your assessment may be more accurate than a guy who went to college to earn cash, loving wolf pups. But your basic sense to balancing things will be misinterpreted by makers of Disney movies and documentaries; they will send more body guards to save us, who know not, how to balance Los Angles the city. Turning the wolf into the victim makes a great deal of money. You can probably see the difference between having to shoot Old Yeller and a yeller eyed wolf, some cannot. Fawn hoofs have always been found in wolf scat, but dog collars must be difficult for a wolf to poop out. I would not be surprised if the next wolf documentary we see will conclude with; if pet owners loved animals they would use Colon-Friendly collars. Brought to you by 'wolf's have irritable bowels too foundation'. Pluto can make the difference.
I have passed up all shots on wolf in my time, I do not know if that makes me smart, dumb or not interested in eating Bear or Wolf. Old timers have told me about winters killing large deer populations in the past. And how dropping feed was done by local outdoorsmen to help the deer make it. And yes they thinned out wolf populations. The locals thought they were managing, experts probably thought they were harassing. You cannot drop common sense pills on a metropolis to off set (docudrama awareness seekers) the wolf needs hugs too crowd. Cycles will happen naturally; this downward cycle of the deer population is due to wolf increase, which is my non expert opinion. But experts will find it to be due to people who did not go to college long enough. Or the Cleveland Peninsula logging plan, I told the Forest service wolves should not be able to teleconference at those meetings. You are young enough to hold your fist up high my woodsy little brother; the old timers are considering golf. I am jealous you spend a lot of time in the woods and so are people who refer to majestic splendor as a New York flat with an REI tent in the middle of it, reading stories by the fondue pot about old groaner; the 12 foot Cock Roach with two 45 slugs stuck in his jaw.
Keep reading the signs in the
woods Cody, it's a lost art. You will have plenty of time to
learn to speak city-television.
