My understanding is that supp tags in some areas are due to whitetail encroachment into regions where they traditionally haven't been, or at least were once present in low density. As a result of high whitetail numbers, predator (read: wolf) populations rise.
According to this theory, controlling whitetail numbers will limit wolves. Not saying it works, but that's a strategy that I've heard.
