Wolves a detriment.
Your article by John Hay Rabb about gray wolves ("Expeditions," December/January) referred to Michigan having only about 280 animals. The DNR has placed the number now around 360, mostly in the Upper Peninsula, an amount considerably lower than knowledgeable sportsmen can attest to.
Our DNR has lost considerable credibility because of their game management policies. They cater to timber and insurance companies that have deep pockets, not to the license-buying public. In the U.P. we are not impressed with the self-governing wisdom of our downstate bureaucrats who create the rules for the entire state. They can write the book on how to mismanage our wildlife to the detriment of very concerned U.P. hunters.
