I really doubt any of those bear-hunting dogs cost a gazillion dollar. More likely they were bred in bear-hunters' back yards.

That said, I love dogs and think they are priceless, as are wolves.

Advocates say dogs essential to wolf hunt's success
Wisconsin would be the first and so far only state to allow hunting dogs to be used to track wolves.

Yet other states wilth open seasons on wolves don't allow dogs. What makes Wisconsin's hunt different?

Wisconsin wolves are smarter than the average...wolf. That's why!

Maybe it's more a question of the average smarts of hunters, rather than dogs?

Oh, in that case, my bets are on the wolf.

I have not not been impressed with the class of citizen I have come across that runs bears with dogs. It takes a big man to have dogs tree a bear and then, POW! But I guess it takes a bunch of time and "places" to train them dogs up, places where these clowns tresspass on property and irritate other citizens in the middle of the night. Bottom line I do not have a very high opinion of these flakes, and while I doubt the Nug would agree I can't help thinking of these characters when I see a story like this.

I guess the wolf is just another piece of red meat to throw to this "special" interest.

While looking at a Wisconsin endangered resources license plate, I wondered if the wolf pictured on it will need to be changed to another endangered animal.

I nominate whooping cranes, as I doubt there will ever be an open season on them.

I dunno, Hank.
They're pretty closely related to the "Ribeyes of the Sky"
