A half dozen Oregon Hunters Association representatives today attended the last of five facilitated Oregon wolf plan stakeholder meetings, where participants supported keeping controlled-take language in the plan that includes future hunting and trapping as wolf numbers and distribution warrant. OHA was one of four stakeholder groups supporting wolf management at today’s meeting in Portland, while the four wolf protectionist stakeholders were absent, following an announcement this week that they would withdraw from the facilitated meeting process. The announcement fueled speculation about their original intent and pending plans for litigation. Meanwhile, participants agreed at today’s meeting that this would be the final meeting prior to a Fish & Wildlife Commission vote on the revised wolf plan in March.
