Any Luck calling wolves?

I am packing in with horses this weekend to a remote cabin to hunt wolves for a few days. Looking to raise my success percentages any way I can. Want to go in as light as possible, so is it worth the time to pack the Fox Pro?

I have heard of some success with electronic calls but the wait time is much longer than coyotes.

Any first hand experience would be appreciated.

Thanks
Jeff

They don't respond to them here. They have been played with too much. I do still hear of the elk hunter that has them come to a cow call. I talked to a hunter the other day that played a Fox Pro during a howling session and the wolves shut up immediately and he never heard another word from them. I think it depends upon the wolf. If it is a single immature they will act differently than a pack with adults present. I do know they are getting more wary all the time.

Might try some coyote howls. Wolves are known to be territorial. If there is any possibility that they are educated you would want to avoid the rabbit in distress for sure. Nice thing is that a hand howler is small, light and very loud.

No personal experience since we do not have wolves in SE Michigan.

I wouldn't use anything too loud. Just use a natural sound. They don't howl loud. Their hearing is very acute.

Jeff, last couple of wolves killed here came to a calf in distress call.

I have done a bit of howling at night on the farm on the edge of the woods and probably had 5 or 6 coyotes within 100yards. Anyone who would claim that coyote vocalizations are soft (if you were 1 foot away) are dreaming. A listener who was 100 or 300 yards away, would of course not think it was loud.
