From his early years wrangling ornery federal trappers, eagles and grizzlies, to paving the way for wolf reintroduction in the Northern Rockies, Carter Niemeyer reveals the wild and bumpy ride that turned a wolf trapper into a wolf champion. Carter retired from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2006, where he was the wolf recovery coordinator for Idaho, and is by far one of the most knowledgeable and outspoken biologists about all sides of the 'wolf issue'. Carter has been a trapper, hunter and wildlife proponent his entire life. Wolves, he believes, add to the outdoor experience, and people who see or hear them should consider the experience thrilling. Wolves do not, as many believe, kill everything in sight, destroy their own food supply, or lick their chops at kids waiting at bus stops. They are simply predators like lions and bears, and anyone who believes otherwise is, well, wrong.
