Good for him, I hope people do boycott because of the wolf hunt. These damn hunters are really getting out of control. Kill, kill, kill, they are really pathetic.

I have an even better idea.
Lets set up specific holiday adventures where we hunt the hunters.The only good hunter is a dead one.
I would love aa few dead corpses of hunter scum bastards gutted and hanging from my walls and as floor mats

I'll support this effort. We need a petition to sign to show the state of Alaska that we pledge not to visit them or buy any products from Alaska.

John Marriott is right; this is disgusting and an outrage. What can be done?

Yes, at last someone with a brain! Those stupid hunters should be shot on sight. The hunter with the biggest victim should have the highest reward: $ 1 000.

The wolf hunt competition in BC and the plot sickens...and what you can do...

P
ermit not needed for wolf-kill contest because event is ‘skill-based’: B.C. gaming branch

Provincial gaming officials say they won’t be intervening in a controversial wolf-kill contest in the Peace River region because no permits are required for such an activity.

The branch issued a statement through spokeswoman Sandra Steilo explaining that for an activity to be considered gaming, three elements must be present: consideration (players pay to be eligible), chance (outcome not predetermined), and a prize to be won (money or anything of value).

However, if the contest is determined by skill, a license is not required. “In this instance, the branch has determined that since entrants must present a wolf to be eligible to win a prize, the event is skill-based and does not require a license.”

I just don't understand how so many are willing to accept the death,and suffering of such a vital predator. We destroy them all then use extreme chemical ( and other worse methods) to control the rats, mice, and rabbits. We are failing miserably as God's caretakers of our planet. I am ashamed to be a human being! Why can't we leave a bit of unmolested wilderness alone?
