The agency is conducting the study in light of decreasing moose populations and declining hunter opportunity, according to a news release from Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

            If you want to see moose.....drive on the North Fork Rd....about 4 miles out of town and there are usually a few standing by the road, or eating salt off the road way, almost every morning when I head to town. I caught a wolf on my game camera, on my property, a week ago....just a few miles from town.....

            A few months ago in Libby there was a problem moose running around and people were concernd for their safety and the children's safety. The experts at FWP were notified and they came up with their pat answers that the moose was a raomer and it would evetually find its' way back out of town. When asked about darting the damn thing and taking it back to the woods, the expert biologist said, in the paper, that the mortality rate was too high for moose when tranquilyzers were used so they advised against doing that...So now, I guess they are throwing that whole lie out the window to further their "research". I wonder what the mortality rate will be and if they will even report it out.

            I wonder how the experts at FWP can try to convince the hunting public that looking for drops can have an "adverse impact on pregnant cows," ; that bowhunting during the rut can have an "adverse impact on the breeding cycle"; but flying a mechanical bird overhead chasing them through all this deep snow they keep claiming is taking its toll on the ungulate numbers, would not stress out the cows enough to abort their calves...These people are hypocritical AND morons.

            Pretty much every time I go out for elk or deer in the Whitefish range I see moose. They aren't the wiliest of creatures.

            My wife and I both tagged out on our Elk this year, We have enjoyed them as well as many of our friends have enjoyed the fruits of our labor, still many great meals to come.

            You are wasting your time trying to educate the uneducatable clucks in this area about this. Most won't even pay attention to the damage caused by the republican deligates they keep sending to Helena. You want to see damage to our wildlife, look at those idiots, far worse than wolves. They keep stabbing sportsmen of MT in the back and all the sportsmen keep yammering on about is wolves. They won't be happy until wildlife in MT is privatized and out of reach of "joe hunter".
            There are piles of elk in NW MT, if you can't kill one, you aren't trying. Laffin.

            There were no wolves reintroduced in NW Montana, even without the reintroduction in the south part of the states, we would have wolves here in the NW part of the state.

            808,
            They are not going to admit their own failures and the damage caused by the introduction of wolves. Don't you see that is why they are "studying" them. Simple cup and ball shuffle game.

            Moose the low hanging berry on the food chain for the wolves! They must realize the repercussions of the reintroduction of a non native predator at that is devastating to our elk and moose population!
