I grew up on a cattle ranch in southwest Montana. During those years, wolves moved into the Bighole Valley, and affected the lives of every rancher in the area. And I think many of you here may have been negatively affected by wolves as well.

My brother and I just released a documentary, "Crying Wolf", which exposes the agendas behind the wolf reintroduction. In the film you can hear the words of real-life people, including ranchers who have lost many livestock to wolves.

Watch "Crying Wolf: Exposing the Wolf Reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park" online for free and buy the DVD here: www.cryingwolfmovie.com

We are relying on a grassroots effort to get the word out. Please help spread the truth about the agendas behind the wolf reintroduction! It was never about saving wolves, it was all about money, power, and political control.

Sorry about the wolves. They are very destructive beasts, and devastating to ranchers' pocket books.

Here is a video that doesn't mention wolves, but it too is all about money, power, and political control.

Tester successfully delists wolves in Montana, returns management to the state
Congress approves Senator’s bipartisan measure to remove recovered wolves from Endangered Species List

Thursday, April 14, 2011



(U.S. SENATE) – Congress today approved Senator Jon Tester’s plan to remove gray wolves in Montana from the Endangered Species List and return their management to the state.

Tester’s bipartisan measure now goes to the President, who is expected to sign it into law...

Which has been done!

Montana's Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission today approved a wolf hunting season for 2011 that creates 14 wolf management units and an overall harvest quota of 220 wolves.

"The approved hunting season is very similar to the one considered last year," said Ken McDonald, FWP’s chief of wildlife. "It's based on wildlife science and we believe it's properly balanced. Our management objective is very clear: we must maintain a viable and connected wolf population as we aim to reduce impacts on Montana's wildlife and livestock. With the ability to manage wolves as we do all other wildlife in Montana we're confident we can meet those expectations."

For the upcoming seasons, hunters will have the opportunity to hunt for 220 wolves in 14 WMUs that are generally situated in the western portion of Montana. A new WMU in the Bitterroot Valley was added to an area where wolves appear to be contributing to a significant drop in the elk population.

Commissioners had approved a harvest quota of 186 wolves across 13 wolf management units for the 2010 season, which was blocked by a federal court. Montana's first and only regulated wolf hunt took place in 2009 when 72 wolves were taken by hunters, three fewer than the established quota.

"We learned from the 2009 hunt that there was a need to be more surgical in directing the wolf harvest toward areas where elk, deer and livestock depredations are an issue," McDonald explained. "So we made adjustments and developed smaller-sized wolf management units each with their own quota."

In addition, the commission approved specific quotas or subquotas in three areas aimed at limiting harvest during early-season backcountry hunts, including the area directly north of Yellowstone National Park. A motion to add two areas directly north of Yellowstone National Park to the three-wolf subquota for WMU 390 was also approved by the commission. The areas encompass deer and elk hunting districts 313 and 316. Also approved was a wolf archery season, which will run Sept. 3 through Oct. 16. Those dates coincide with Montana's deer and elk archery seasons.

McDonald said a harvest quota of 220 is projected to reduce the wolf population to a minimum of 425 wolves, or by about 25 percent. These projections include anticipated reductions due to livestock depredation and mortalities from other events, like accidents and natural causes.

These hunts should not have been stopped by the Courts years ago-- but as my old friend Ron Marlenee said-- most of anything west of central Montana (which to me is Lewistown) no longer represents what is the real Montana.....

I have a group I call " Right Stuff" in my address book and I sent the link to all - - - I think every American not wanting the Government to take care of them should watch!

My wife's family all want to go to a country where they will be taken care of - - - I have offered one way tickets but no takers.

Thank you for sharing "Crying Wolf" with your friends! We need ALL the help we can get to educate everyone we can on this takings by the government. Please keep spreading "Crying Wolf" via email, facebook, twitter, and especially word of mouth!

I have seen "Grinding America Down" - one of the best documentaries on the socialistic agendas running rampant in Washington DC! Great film.

Watch "Crying Wolf" for free, buy the DVD, help support the cause here: www.cryingwolfmovie.com

Thanks again!

The movie hits the nail on the head . Its all about power over the people & control . The upper great lakes wolf population is out of control . The federal government has no money to manage them & will not delist the wolf . We the people in animal agriculture pay the frieght on this deal .
The wolf issue in the usa . mirrors many other things that the government is into in this country .

Great movie, very eye-opening. Great use of biblical references and the hymn at the closing was outstanding.

Just two weeks ago my wife and I accidentally discovered the Big Hole Valley while traveling non-interstate from Missoula to Jackson Hole. Unbelievably beautiful cattle country. Within one hour driving through the valley I'm sure we saw 100,000 head of cattle and 500,000 rolls of hay and even some beaver slide haystacks.

Do you have a 15-minute version of the movie for a civic club program? I will show it to my Rotary club and my Cattlemen's association. The story needs to be told here too even though we are thousands of miles away.

Audrey, we got this video link a few days ago, watched it and sent it on to all of our contacts. Great job! This is the truth, we were managing a ranch between Libby and Kalispel when they were having the hearings for introduction. We had wolves on the ranch that were coming in from Canada, killing cattle, and denning on the ranch. Nobody was supposed to know about it because then they could not justify bringing them in, they were already here. Ed Bangs and his cohorts were out there every week monitoring them and trying to keep us quiet. I told people that they had better show up at those hearings because they are going to bring them in no matter what. Nobody listened and within a year they were turning wolves loose on the Salmon river. My family no longer grazes their Forest Service allotment because the wolves eat all of the calves.

I believe Denny Rehberg came up with this one and Testor supported it.

No Hanta-- actually it was just the opposite...Tester tacked the bill delisting the wolf from the endangered species act allowing the wolf hunts onto another bill- which Rehberg then voted against...But it passed anyway....

Idaho, Montana Wolves Delisted by Congress
New West ^ | April 15, 2011 | Brodie Farquhar

Posted on Friday, April 15, 2011 10:43:13 AM by jazusamo


The U.S. Senate approved a must-pass budget bill on Thursday, removing wolves in Montana and Idaho from Endangered Species Act protections and placing wolf management under state game departments.


A rider in the budget bill, sponsored by Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, returns the legal playing field back to 2009 when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had delisted the wolves in Montana and Idaho. Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho, chairman of the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, attached a similar measure to the House version of the budget bill.


“This is a responsible step, and a step I think needed to happen,” said Tester, in a late-afternoon conference call with reporters.


The budget bill passed in the Democratically-controlled Senate 81-19 and earlier in the Republican-controlled House 260-167.


Although Sen. Max Baucus, D-MT, and Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer both praised Tester’s successful efforts, Denny Rehberg, Montana’s U.S. representative, did not, nor did he vote for the budget bill. Rehberg was one of 59 Republicans in the House to vote against the bill.

Audrey, Thanks so much for posting the link and thanks to you and your brother for all of the effort you put into it. I would encourage everyone to copy the link and send it to as many contacts as you can. You may think that this does not affect you. You may be correct in that you may never have our wolf problem, but it is certain that you (we) will lose more and more of the say in how we operate or what we can do on our properties. Unless "We the People" make our voices heard soon, it may well be too late.
