F4WM has saved an estimated 80,000+ elk, moose, deer, and livestock, with science-based predator control.
F4WM has removed 590+ wolves with just over $358,000 membership and sponsor dollars, with zero tax funding. That's less than $610 per wolf, solely funded by Sportsmen and concerned citizens. Without the F4WM program, the US Dept of Agriculture's Wildlife Services, would have to be employed through the Idaho Wolf Control Board to remove the same wolves. Their average expense to investigate livestock depredations and remove problem wolves averaged $9005 per wolf in 2016, and $8003 per wolf in early 2017, 65% of which, has historically been funded by Idaho state tax dollars. 590 wolves x $9000 per wolf= $5,310,000... 65% Tax funded= $3,451,500 State Tax Dollars potentially saved by implementation of our Wolf Harvest Reimbursement Program.
F4WM brings those who want wolves manged- Idaho Fish & Game, outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, and ranchers, -together with those who have the ways and means to get the job done.
