Unless they get a favorable ruling, they will hold out for as long as possible. This administration doesn't want us harvesting wolves so they will make it as inconvenient as possible for those that do draw.

I think itís been proven no matter how inconvenient they make it, the harvest will happen. There was a six hour notice last time! And quota was met in mere days!

Well the 21st has come and gone (at least the chance the drawing would be done) and now the wolf website says the drawing will take place in October. And now I see the 6 Chippewa tribes filed suit against the state to end the hunt, but I don't see that going anywhere. My guess is the DNR is waiting to see what happens and might be another last-minute drawing like the February hunt but for different reasons. They've had the quota for 40 days now, no reason not to do the drawing and let folks who are drawn start getting ready. There is a wolf trapper course this weekend and another one next weekend, likely nobody will know if they're drawn before those courses.

Time to start sending some emails and demanding some answers. The bobcat/fisher drawings happened within a week or so of the application deadline. The NRB set the quota Aug 10/11 and here we are still wondering when the drawing will take place. Easier to refund folks for just an application than if they draw and start selling licenses in case the season gets shut down again.

The difference now versus then is you don't need trappers ed to hunt with dogs. That said, until we go back to pressuring zones, season will last a couple of days for most zones even with the lower ratio used for tags and an early November start that prohibits use of dogs.

Most folks understand this, but it will lead to some unhappy campers. This department and administration still has not stopped throwing their tantrum. This is exactly why so much is spelled out in state statue and more is likely to follow should we get a new governor.

No, the wolf class is not required.

If I read the article right the tribes only grabbed on and supported the lawsuit. Not sure why we as a state need to take any consideration from a "sovereign nation" but apparently that is the cross we must bear. Also giving up 50% to a entity that is not going to use them is ridiculous which is why I believe and if it has been said I apologize but I believe the reason that the quota was set twice the recommended.

I also read that the people responsible for the framework on the sustainable wolf population goal of 350 are saying that it wasn't intended to be an etched in stone number but rather a starting point of sorts.

For anyone with Facebook, Wisconsin Outdoor News is having a live chat tonight at 7pm with Dean Bortz and DNR big game biologist Randy Johnson. I expect the question about the timing of the wolf drawing to be at least brought up and hopefully discussed.

I am guessing it will. I might join to see how tough a question will get asked.

I had bowling league tonight so I couldn't watch it live, but I scrolled through it now and didn't see/hear anything addressing the drawing not being done yet. I figured WON wouldn't hold back but Dean was pitching softballs to Randy through most of what I saw. A wasted opportunity for some answers in my opinion.

They said they were to do the drawing by the 21st and should have stuck to it!

I don't believe under any circumstamce DNR would issue refunds, tlguy.

The question was asked when the drawing would be and the answer was "soon." If they don't do a drawing, I'm getting my $10 back one way or another. Class action lawsuit?
