Michigan deserves elk as much as wolves


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

The people of Michigan are being force-fed wolves. Our DNR spends money to track and protect them. We can't hunt them. Many of us don't want them, but they are being pushed on us whether we want them or not. They lived here once, so they get to come back. I think it's time hunters pushed back. The DNR works for us, not the other way around.

I suggest that Michigan hunters band together and insist that the DNR re-stock the U.P. with elk. Yes, elk. They were there once. They should get to come back, same as the wolves.

Kentucky has over 6,000, yes 6,000 elk with a goal of 8,000 and annual hunting permits of 1,500 then. Michigan issued 168 permits in 2007. The DNR is content to maintain Michigan's herd at about 900 or so animals. Why is this? Why does Michigan have to take a back seat to Kentucky elk-wise? Why can't there be a larger U.P. elk herd? Because of wolves? It makes no sense.

I would urge individuals and sportsmen's clubs to petition the NRC to re-stock elk in OUR U.P. Michigan belongs to its people, not the DNR or the wolves. If the wolf packs have to be knocked back some to ensure success of the elk, then so be it. Elk deserve to be in the U.P. just as much as the wolves do.
