Just a thought; Last winter moose, caribou and deer were decimated because of high snow. That made it easier for wolves to get their kill and harder on the animals to graze.
This year, extremely warm weather will more than likely kill a lot of bears due to hypothermia.
The hare population has dropped on its 5 year cycle. So there goes lynx and coyotes.
SOOOO, it'd be a great year to go after sheep and wolves??? 2013: Sheep and wolves. Plan.
