10. I hunt Deer, and would be willing to hunt Elk.

I would never hurt a wolf. Without them, we could lose the elk populations entirely. When they were removed from Yellowstone, the elk stopped migrating as much. They destroyed the low lying trees, which drove out the beavers, which lowered the water table, and the elk would suffer boom and bust population growth from 9k to 30k. That's risky. That results in bans on hunting for season. Possibly permanently.

We need the wolves, more than I need the elk meat.

I've noticed some hunters coming around on this, but the farmers, they HATE wolves. And farmers have a lot of political pull.
