Well Whaddya Know?

Well whaddya know: Wyoming finally has been blessed with its first wolf hunt. After years of obfuscative litigation we’re finally going to have an opportunity to manage this top-tier predator. As I write this, the trophy season is starting its third day. Two wolves have been taken—one in the Sunlight Basin about 50 miles west of me and another up Pacific Creek, considerably further south. Amazingly, the world is still turning upon its axis, the Rapture and Armageddon have yet to occur, and there are still plenty of wolves living quite well within the Yellowstone ecosystem.
