Thanks for the reply. I think you're right.

I heard that on 6/16/16 WisDNR is going to announce the wolf population estimate for this year. Will be interesting to see what they came up with. I don't dis the DNR, as this wolf season hangup is a Federal problem at this point, but I find it hard to believe an accurate count can be determined. I think for one, they are missing a number of wolves in farm country.

I guess I'd prefer you don't post that pic on facebook. I'm in that rare minority that dislikes facebook.

Thanks for allowing this interesting discussion on this website.

I was at a a recent WTA event and didn't get a positive update on the SHARE Act. I got the impression the US Senate isn't planning on taking it up anytime soon, if at all. It's possible the process may have to start over, or hopefully successfully get attached as a rider sometime.

On a positive note. At the WTA event, I was told foot activated cable restraints (I think that's what they're called) are now legal in WI (primarily to be used for coyote I'd assume). I guess when the animal steps on the pan, instead of jaws closing on their foot, a cable loop grabs their leg. I'm not yet sure where these are sold. DNR said they will be in the reg book when it comes out. I would imagine if we ever do get the wolf season back that this might be 1 more tool for a trapper to use.

Yes it makes you wonder why the SHARE act is getting set aside. It's taking more then one person to turn their heads here.
Thats good new on the cable restraints definitely!
