Actualy, I do know what I'm talking about, because I understand math. You know what your talking about, because you clearly understand a wolf pack kill. To quote Ronald Reagan, we can disagree without being disagreeable.

You came into a "Hunting" forum telling people it's not right to kill predators. Why ?? What is the point ??

Even if you double the estimate for elk killed by wolves in yellowstone, that's 1800 call it 2000, that's 6% or so of the total 30k population. A very sustainable number.

Yellowstone has nothing to do with the real world. It is a National Park. What is the point of bringing up Yellowstone ???

I didn't tell people that, I asked why, and further questioned the given answered. I've even gone so far as to say I don't think your bad people for doing. Frankly, I like your answer best, because it's at least honest. "because it's fun" is a good reason to me to do a lot of things. Because it's fun is why I'm in my chosen trade.

My only point here is that killing wolves is not nesesarry, given the reasons people claim for doing it. Coyotes might be a different, I've not seen enough hard data on that yet.

I came on a hunting forum because I'm interested in hunting, I've done so in the past, but I've never fully butchered a deer, and I've not yet killed a turkey with a bow, though it's my goal to do so

Because it's a place where hard data can be found. As to it having nothing to do with the real world, well that's like saying dropping a lead weight in a lab has no bearing on wether or not gravity works in your back yard...

There is no hunting in Yellowstone---- so the data isn't apples to apples. Therefore it doesn't have any relation.

You said it in post #9

To catch them in the act means you find tracks around the kill. Then when you see the coyote come back you kill it.

I'm sorry, but how is me sharing my personal opinion the same as telling other what to do?
