Re: Idaho Wolf Hunting info needed
Count me in the group that want's them gone! This question has come up a few times, and respectfully the degree of difficulty is very high, I could tell you where wolf howls were heard last week, but you'd be burning $4 a gallon fuel to chase an animal that may have moved another fuel tank in God knows what direction. We are all starting from scratch, and there isn't a secret spot. Wolves are being killed in pretty much all the units except southern Idaho. Mostly luck. Somewhat better odds than hitting one on the highway, but not much.
History many times is the best teacher, and there is a reason, aerial gunning, traps, poison, bounties, shoot on sight, and professionals working full time have been required to control wolf populations.
Tossing a dart at a map is as likely to produce desirable results as any advice you'll get. By all means go, have fun, have plenty of tags. Like an outfitter in the NWT told me 20+ years ago, have a tag in your pocket, if for some quirk we get into a pack keep shooting and we'll find enough tags. It's an old style metal tag still in the basement unfilled. Second thought it may be an unfilled BC tag, I've got some of those also. I'll most likely add Idaho to the set after the New Year.
I think it's more conscience than competition keeping the answers vague.
