I've been reading online about the Wolves in Northern Cali, I've seen trail cam pics too.

This afternoon on the way home from being out and about My wife and I saw one walking down the road. He went up a trail on the side of the road and stood broadside at about 50' and let us take a good look at him.

I have lived around wolves before and there is no doubt in my mine that we saw a wild wolf tonight.

Cali Fish and Wildlife have confirmed that there are four different packs in Cali that they know of. Either one of them moved or there is a new pack here.

1. I think it's fine for wolves to have places to live.

But I sure as hell don't want any of them living around here. Coyotes are bad enough.

3. The Ranchers here will clip their population after the first bovine kill.

These are not the same wolves that once populated this area. They socialize differently and hunt differently. This is not quite bringing back an indigenous species this is the introduction of a new species.

It will be fun to watch. The state and feds spent hundreds of millions of dollars and could not stop the pot growers up here and the grows are stationary. Trying to find highly mobile and stealthy hunters looking for wolves is a whole lot harder than that.

2. I live for hunting predators

I’d love a
Wolf population healthy enough to hunt Texas. Same for
Black bears.

4. I don't even hunt black bears anymore. They are thick around here.

They are also nasty to handle after you pull the trigger. Not nasty as in mean, nasty as in greasy to skin and deal with making meat out of them.

5. GA Wildlife used

to deny the existence of mountain lions living around the Soque River and into the Tallulah Gorge area until the rangers kept seeing them. They then had to admit it. I lived close to the Soque, never saw one, but had large cat prints once in the snow on my property. Neighbors who lived on the river would spot them in the evening.

6. The maps that show deer habitat are the same as the maps that show mountain lion habitat.

In the western US, if you have deer you also have lions.

I've seen very few lions in the wild but see their tracks all the time. I have also dealt with a couple that were close to our home or in with my livestock.

Even when they are right in front of you the are damn hard to see.
