WI’s third wolf hunt has become a debauchery in excessive indulgence being run by Cathy Stepp head of the WDNR. Wolves a once endangered species have become the targets of wolf hater’s such as Ted Nugent.
WI’s third wolf hunt has many problems that need to be addressed such as wolf management zones going over the kill quotas. Zone 1 went over by almost half the kill quota before WDNR caught it and closed the zone. On Tuesday I asked MacFarland what will be done about zones going over the limits. MacFarland said, “That is yet to be determined by administration.”
It’s clear to this blogger that Cathy Stepp’s (head WDNR) new WDNR has created a climate of hostility towards WI wild wolves. Stepp continues to allow fringe anti wolf hunters to run and shape WI wolf management policies.
Look at one extremist fringe hunter Ted Nugent, who openly called for WI wolf hunters to poach wolves.
“WISCONSIN Spirit BloodBrothers the Weisner family trapped this stunning wolf. Though no state has issued an adeqaute number of wolf tags, believe when I tell you that certain WE THE PEOPLE in touch caring Americans are killing MANY MANY more wolves than the numbnut corrupt dishonest PC government thugs allow. Kill as many as you can real conservationists. The wolf population is irresponsibly & dangerously out of control. Wolf jackets ROCK!!” Said Ted Nugent on his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/tednugent?ref=ts&fref=ts
Ted Nugent’s call to poach wolves isn’t sitting well with WI residents who have made it clear they want wolves in a recent WDNR wolf attitude survey https://wolvesofdouglascountywisconsin.com/2014/08/28/8281wdnr-wolf-survey-results-the-good-bad-and-the-ugly-by-rachel-tilseth/
I am betting that the majority of WI’s ethical hunters won’t participate in Ted Nugent’s fringe hunting poachers club!
Here are the wolf kill numbers as of today, October 23, 2014

I’ve said it before and will say it again that Stepp’s WDNR is a dysfunction Junction.
I think Stepp took hunting lessons from Nugent’s fringe hunting poacher’s club.
