Killer fall for wolves....

Prices for licenses have been set and are ready to go. Despite elk numbers being higher than 20 years ago, wolves are still being blamed for depressing some herds so they can't recover. But what does that actually mean? Not all the elk in a state are considered one herd so in areas wolves are depressing the numbers so they can't rebound. However, while herds in some areas are unable to recover because of wolf predation most of the herds in the rest of the state are doing much better as the sick and weak are culled.
