We got a bunch of people from the West Coast tripping balls about this, calling for this man's death or public humiliation.

Meanwhile Miidwesterners are wondering what the man did wrong. xD

Different experiences make for different sets of ethics I guess.... probably one of the reasons why we can't get the federal government to do ****.

As a midwestern hunter, i don't agree with the man's methods. He should be reprimanded for this, but i didn't see anything about hunting out of season, therefore i couldn't entirely disagree with what he did.

that said, I do believe you are correct that different experiences make for different ethics.

It may have been in season, but it was still a protected animal that he lured out of a protected area.

I'm a California guy myself, and I also disagree with the man's method.

First part is all emotional and I realize I am a hypocrite because I support certain animal testing, consumption, and overall use of animals for human needs. But something about calling a wolf using a young one's call.......just seems wrong.

Second part of my objection is that using the call seems too easy. Here's the part where I mention that I'm not a hunter, or have so much as picked up a gun.......purely because of cost, legal issues in Ca (not gun friendly) and the fact that I have 2 retarded sisters who pretty much do the opposite of what they are told.

But I always thought the point of hunting was to either hone your skills to catch food without the use of modern equipment (gun excluded) or to show off one's ability to shoot things, the wolf call just seems to contradict that. Makes it seem more like shooting fish in the proverbial barrel.

(If that second part is wrong, I would appreciate someone with actual hunting exp to correct me.)

Actually i see hunting as a sport and as well as source of sustenance, and just like anything there are cheaters, hence why i disagreed with his methods. Using a call, is like using steroids for hunting: it gives an unfair advantage to a person, so yes i agree that using a pup's call for this was despicable.

albiet, There are only a select few cases that i find it to be acceptable to use a call, this was clearly not it. as far as drawing out an animal from the park, i don't like it at all, but i can't say that i haven't done a similar thing, though mine was following patterns and recognizing when an animal would enter unhuntable refuge land from huntable refuge land. My preferences are dictated by why the state has issued me for tags that year (i haven't gone for a long time).

oh, and to top all of this off, i live on a wildlife refuge for 18 years. because my father was the manager for the area, i had to make sure i didn't break the regulations or else he'd get his ass fired quick. I would like to pour rusty nails down this hunter's urethra, but he's probably had his license revoked forever, so i don't really care.
