Do you guys hunt at all?

In the Netherlands hunting wolves is illegal, and I think that ban comes from the EU, so Germany probably can't hunt them. We recently got wolves in our country as wel (they came from Germany). It's the return of a natural predator that should've been in our ecosystem all along. Plenty of people are still mad about it though.

Yeah wolves are protected in certain parts of the US too. I just wondered how much of your population hunted in general.

Very little I'd think. Getting a weapons permit and a weapon can be a bit of a bitch. And hunting itself is rather limited in when and what and how much you can hunt.

Where is there enough wild space in the Netherlands to support wolf packs?

Mostly de Veluwe. Though exact locations are kept secret to protect the wolves.

Wolves are (sadly) hunted in Sweden, so it's probably not prohibited by the EU.
