Ok so if she was shooting people you'd be like "OH NOES THOSE PEOPLE DIED LETS HONOR THEM" but NOOO one of evolution's greatest creatures dying in a inhumane and cowardly way you're all like "YEAH THOSE WOLVES DESERVE TO DIE" this is why I am ashamed to be human-see what you retards did?,you made me ashemed to be a human being
The thing is, I have nothing against TLC or even whoring oneself out on TV if one so desires. Much of my dislike of the woman comes from the way she's willing to exploit her family for political and monetary gain.
There is NO Aerial 'Hunting' in Alaska. Aerial Predator Control, and Predator Control are permits under a completely different system governed by AK Dept. of Fish and Game. Predator Control Permits allow Hunters and Trappers to apply to assist Fish and Game in management of predators such as wolves, coyotes, black and brown bears (Grizzlies). They aren't as restrictive as 'sport' and 'fair chase' rules don't apply as they are meant to reduce a specific number of predators within a specific game management area.
Hunting is different. Hunting is licensed and has the 'fair chase' and 'sporting' rules requiring hunters to dismount from all vehicles (snow machines [mobiles for you Lower 48 residents...], ATVs, and aircraft).

Predator control is pretty much on the same par with hunting since one of the main reasons is population control. That Idaho wolf hunt last fall was predator control on itself even though there were no planes. Also, recent laws and regulations force those in planes to land their vehicle and wait a few minutes before shooting/pursuing the wolf or bear. Also, it's excluded to those with special licenses for those that can make up a hunting team.
There are two methods for making a kill during an aerial hunting expedition: Either you shoot the wolf while airborne or you track the animal from above, then land and shoot it from the ground. Legal limits on "land and shoot" hunting have been far less stringent: For many years after shooting from the air was outlawed, anyone with a hunting or trapping license could practice "land and shoot," provided he or she walked a certain distance from his plane before opening fire. Current rules in Alaska require a delay between landing an aircraft and killing an animal: In most cases, hunters must wait until 3 the following morning before they can get started.
It's called hunting because it's still a part of the wolf harvest and the carcass is still used.
