At the moment wolves aren't a cause for concern, so I wouldn't be worrying about this for the sake of the species.
Hunting in some cases, is the only way for the person to get money and I have nothing against that as long as it isn't on a threatened or endangered species. Besides, hunters are just normal people hunting, lets say, for their family, so they can provide them with money, food and heck maybe even a fur scarf for the winter.
Similar to what wolves do, they hunt, kill, get the food and provide for their family. Lets not forget that the animal they killed was innocent too.
Hunters that use the meat to eat is great. It's what they do most of the time with it anyway, I believe. It's better having fresh meat, than going to a supermarket than buying meat that has come from a battery farm, for example. Not to mention the way some supermarkets treat the meat with chemicals such as Carbon Monoxide.
Also after you've eaten the meat, you can use the fur for something, so nothing really goes to waste. So hunting is not always pointless.
Sure there are people who hunt for sport, but i'm not going to bash them. It's their choice.
As long as the animal will be put to good use, I see no problem.
The only hunting I have a problem with is when it's illegal, done on an endangered or threatened species or just killing it for the purpose of one part of the animal. For example you could kill an animal for it's fur and just leave the meat. Instead you could eat the meat, or perhaps feed it to a pet. Leaving most of the animal put to use.
I'm sure most hunters do this anyway.
I have no concern for the gray wolf, they are doing fine; and as cold-hearted this sounds (not intended), a few wolves isn't going to make a difference to the whole population of them.
I'm going to go worry over the survival of the black rhinoceros instead.
