The proposed wolf control program is designed to enable recovery of important deer herds and to ensure the long term maintenance of the Island's predator-ungulate system at viable densities. Key deer production zones where habitat prescriptions have been implemented to provide old growth timber for winter range will receive emphasis. Initial wolf reductions of 80% appear necessary to allow a suitable recovery period (5-10 years) for most deer herds on northern Vancouver Island. On southern Vancouver Island, wolf reductions are required to reverse indications of deer declines prior to reaching the low densities that have occurred on northern Vancouver Island. Incentives to increase wolf trapping activities will form the major control method at present. The program will enable wolves to slowly increa
