176 Sheep dead...

Wolves cause death of 176 sheep near Fogg Hill; Forest Service says stay out of area - Teton Valley News: News

Granted, sheep are stupid critters and many of them died due to suffocation from their flight from the wolves, regardless, the wolves caused the deaths of 176 animals.

Only one was chewed on.

That's just up the road from me.

When things settle me and the goats are headed that way.

Been scouting some local areas. Its just too darn hot even up high.

The idea is to spend enough time and find prospective spots where I can see a major amount of country. Then plink at 'em when they appear at what ever distance.

As soon as it rains on my 1 mile spot I'll be validating drops to that distance and a bit beyond.

Reason for rain is that last year we were shooting a 50 Cal in the same area and bullet impact started a burn. Not the time for that kind of stuff.

Another reason to shoot wolves.

Re: 176 Sheep dead...

12 "lethally" trapped... 176 dead sheep in one attack... I'm not a math wiz, but it looks like those boys still have a lot of work to do. With that many dead sheep around sending out a massive scent trail, a guy could keep a barrel pretty warm...

....I heard roots, berries, and an occasional mouse. I'm curious the point to just leaving them lay. Seems like a giant bait site giving predators a taste for mutton.
