I am in no way insulting your knowledge of killing wolves, but how hard can they be to kill? A 75-100 pound dog 6"-8" thick does not take much to kill in my limited knowledge. I just hate sewing hides! A dead wolf makes me happy, post some pictures of some 338 Lapua holes!
I do pack a 300rum on my pack horse for wolves past 700 yards, but I have not needed it.
With trapping do you have better luck with bait hole, or scent post sets for wolves?
