yuper,

what have you been smokin?

what information do you have that wolves and coyotes are

eating the population?

Maybe, these criters are just out to get their

'natural'

enemies,

'sportsman and hunters'?

yuper,

could it be the wolves and coyotes know a good thing,

when they see it?

I guess the dnr post's those sign's so they won't lose revenue from license fee's if the animals feast on a few fine 'hunter' carcasses?

Clearly, there's too many 'sportman-hunters' and nature has a way of preserving the eco system balance.

Let's fix mother nature,

allow wolves and coyotes to mature

and fulfill their natual selection

function!

Let the wolves and coyotes start the baiting season.

Maybe the deer herd is right where it needs to be, maybe the wolves helped to bring it there!! I dont hear as many car-deer accidents on the scanner or the news as i did 5 or more years ago.

Id rather have a few wolves running around in the woods around my house rather than having to watch for deer while im driving 30 miles to work...

It would be nice if the people who want to comment on this topic were actually hunters and knew something of the sport!! If you are a hunter, you need to spend more time in the woods then deer season!!! I spend a lot of my time in the woods,I think some of you spend most of your time posting on this site!! If you never go into the woods,how could you know what goes on in the woods??? Oh yeah you heard about it here!!! Our deer herd is messed up and needs to be fixed !! Fact the deer herd is way down,fact we are killing mature bucks before they can breed,fact the coyote population is the highest it has been it decades,fact there are too many wolves in Delta and Menominee counties !! There is an area in Bark River where the DNR has posted signs for hunters to beware because there is a high wolf population!! If you have to warn hunters, then there are wolves that need to be killed!! As far as people using bait to attract deer has NOTHING to do with the low numbers of deer!!

It's all about the food chain stupid...

Provide enough feed and they will come,

whether you like it or not.

Whatever the 'feed' is there, another species will look to where eating out is easiest.

And if you leave your meal in the wild, it will take more time and effort to make supper,

than if you bait or cage your next meal in a known designated kill zone.

"Sportsman" or Baiters, any excuse, no expense too great,

just to get out of the house, and

they all pay dearly for

their "freedom" and

then complain about license fees!

What a pack of winer's.

If you want to go back to "traditional ways of hunting" how about we ban baiting and go back to actually hunting.

Typical "yoopers", always complaining about the deer herd. God forbid you actually have to "hunt" for your deer.

arealyooper very well said and I agree. I also believe the only reason they have all these new hunts are for the extra money they receive for the licence's they otherwise would not be selling. I would like to see it go back to the traditional ways of hunting without all the special seasons. Only one thing I would like to see and I have heard it from a lot of hunters is to put muzzle loading along with archery so they run together.As far as kids under 14 I think its great to take them out and show them how to hunt and if they are good enough with a gun let them shoot but they should use the adults tag, thats how I was brought up and everything seemed to have worked out just fine.

Lets put the blame for the slow deer season where it belongs! The reason we have less deer is because the coyote population is way too high, and to some extent we have way more wolves then the DNR is saying!! There are a lot of reasons for the messed up deer herd. I think they issue way too many doe permits each year and that directly affects the number of deer we have. I think the youth hunt is a problem, because a lot of biiger mature bucks are killed off before they get to breed.I think selling a licence to little kids is foolish, they should wait till they are 14 years old like it has always been!! The only reason the DNR does things like this is because deer hunters numbers have been going down each year!! If they want to sell more permits then they need to get more deer in the woods!!! If you take a young hunter out and they do not see any deer, they get bored and want to give up!!! If you want the deer herd fixed, then start complaining to the folks we elect to represent us!!
