New Berlin, Wis. --(Ammoland.com)- If you are wondering why North American wolves have been reintroduced in Montana, Silent Draw Outdoors will break down the data and inform audiences on Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, this Wednesday, March 27 at 6:30p.m. ET/PT. Wolf populations in Montana have soared over the last ten years to just under 400 wolves and Shaine Reece is discussing the wolf management issues with two authorities from Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. The must watch program will also diagram a successful wolf hunt that sheds light on what wolves are doing to the mule deer population.

Hunting and managing wolves is no easy task in the Rocky Mountain Region of Montana. According to Jim Williams of the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, during the 2012 hunting season, an average of only .7 wolves were taken by hunters. During the same hunting season, trappers only harvested 1.7 wolves. “Wolves in the region need to be hunted to sustain deer and elk populations,” said David Allen, CEO of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Audiences will also experience a black wolf hunt by Silent Draw Outdoors pro staff member, Lucas Sterling. The weather is treacherous; however, Sterling settles into an area and connects on a black wolf from 250 yards. The show also depicts what wolves are capable of doing to a mature mule deer.

“Wolves will never be hunted to extinction as they are too intelligent and they have a keen sense that is unmatched,” said Shaine Reece, host of Silent Draw Outdoors. “In Montana last year, 700 plus wolf tags were issued and approximately 160 wolves were harvested.

“If wolf population’s grows too large, it can cause natural mortality rates to increase for wolves, lions and more predators,” said Jim Williams, Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks. “Wolves can sustain a harvest and without human management, our ecosystem is going to have serious fractures.”
