Re: New bill seeks to delist gray wolves

Given that the gray wolf species' population is different in every state, I agree it doesn't make much sense to keep them on the federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife, when they have in fact recovered in many states. In areas with a healthy, stable gray wolf population, their listing d...

Re: Conservation Status of the Gray Wolf in the United States

An update on gray wolf conservation and management in Washington. Most recently, a wolf incident was reported 4 days ago: On the evening of Feb. 4, WDFW staff were informed that a ranch employee checking on cattle killed a wolf in northeastern Adams County in a “caught-in-the-act” scenario. The ran...

Re: You Had Me at Playbow

I wonder what will happen in groups including both sexes. Will wolves of the same sex fight/compete with the player, or ignore them completely (or perhaps one or the other depending on its personality)? It's also been suggested that the player might be able to coax a pack member away from their own...

Re: Our Douglas-firs are Tree-mendous

I was not expecting to be more awestruck by the trees (of all things) than by the actual wolf models. Maybe it's because I tend to appreciate beautiful environments in games a little more than the average gamer. I'm going to end up starving/dehydrating my wolf by spending all of my time orbiting my...

Re: Playing Dead

I'm definitely going to have Ironwolf and one-life mate turned on at all times. I know I'm probably alone (or very rare) in this, but personally I'd prefer the highest and most realistic punishment possible for death, which is of course no second chances. Real wolves don't get them, so I don't want...

Re: Washington groups to get one-day notice of wolf culling

The department’s policy on lethal control of wolves was influenced by a study funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that found partial pack removal was most effective in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming if done within seven days of a depredation. If wildlife managers waited 14 days, there was no d...

Wolves In Colorado? A Rancher's Perspective

The following is an excerpt from a short article from Post Independent, written by Eric Porter, a Colorado rancher. Keep in mind that this was written in an opinion column, and is biased. We have been very involved with the wolf reintroduction program in Oregon. The first pack in Oregon was the Imn...

Re: Non-Wolf RolePlays ─ Your Thoughts?

There's nothing wrong with them rules-wise, but I personally wouldn't use/join them for non-wolf roleplaying.

Re: Funniest Wolfquest Roleplay Posts on MP

I'm all for flavorful descriptions, but there are plenty of writers out there that not only take it way too far, but also fail to use most of their words (or grammar) correctly. Take these two roleplay posts I once read in a MP server, for example: [Player]: She vigilanted her essenced permafrosted...

Re: Non-Wolf RolePlays ─ Your Thoughts?

Personally, I think that roleplaying as anything other than wolves, using wolf characters on a wolf game, is odd. A little less so when the characters are close relatives, such as dogs, but if a person wants to roleplay something entirely unrelated, why not go to a roleplay forum/website with that ...

Re: Cleverer Coyotes

I think it looks more like a canter than a sprint in that video, considering the legs don't extend out far enough. Cantering is a bit more bouncy than sprinting, and the tail naturally bobs as the back undulates with the movement of the legs. c: I looked around, and this was the best I could find f...

Re: Have you ever seen a Wolf?

I once went to a zoo with a relatively large wolf enclosure. Near the viewing area there was a mock 'wolf's den' made of stone, meant to accurately represent how large wolves' dens are/what they typically look like, and people were able to crawl inside (It was large enough for about two people my s...
