    I quit deer hunting a couple years ago but the group I shared the lease with all filled out this year with big antlered bucks. When I was hunting on this land someone would always see the big (black) alpha wolf chasing deer. This year one of the guys was watching a group of deer and so was this big wolf. He said he was so big if he was standing next to it the wolf would be almost up to his chest. I was walking into those woods in the dark the last season I hunted (about a mile on a logging road) and not 10 yards away from me a wolf let out a howl. Man did I boogy to my stand. This is central Wisconsin where there is one downward spike where the wolves have come down from up north.

    It is amazing to think of the migrations of various species of animals over the years. Growing up, we didn't have a deer season in Kansas. I don't remember seeing a deer until the mid-60's. That was about the time the state began a lottery system. When the lottery began, IIRC, they gave out something like 50 or 75 tags. Today, we have close to 15,000 deer/vehicle accidents in the state. Deer are seen wandering our cities and towns, as if they own the place. We didn't have any wild turkeys. Some were seeded in a limited area to our south. Now we see wild turkeys on our golf course, along our roadways. That population has expanded greatly over the past few years. It does not surprise me that you've seen wolves migrate south out of Canada. Good to see a species that was once struggling to even survive, now competing for the same game as humans.

    I have a buddy that lives in Minnesota.

    Wolves have had a disastrous effect on the deer population.

    Their motto is Shoot. Shovel. Shut up.

    They have the same saying here about Gray Wolves.

    Yup, they're a real problem and they're only going to get worse as we can't control their numbers through hunting even though their numbers are way above what they wanted to get them to....

    So tornadoes gradually dumped wolves, deer and turkeys into Kansas?
