Humble brag? I suspect many posters on this particular forum would appreciate the wolf skin more with the wolf still occupying it, not tacked on a wall. Maybe this would be better placed in the Hobbies/Recreation forum.

Unless that wolf was part of a wildlife management hunt, there was no need to take it. I hate trophy hunters. I taught Hunter Safety for the state of Florida and I'm an avid spearfisherman. Today, hunting is one of the tools used to maintain healthy populations in limited areas where the Edge effect is a large consideration. There are only so many individuals that a given area will support and that includes predators.

The state of New York found out the hard way what happens when you eliminate predators.
