Idaho Wolf Trapping

Have heard that Idaho units 29 and 30 will get a wolf tapping season this year. Does anyone know for sure. Any other units?

Re: Idaho Wolf Trapping

The trapping of wolves is not all you might think it is understand! They are very weary and scent/trap placement must be perfect. Trapping for me years ago was fun, never minded the getting up late or getting back late. Trapping beaver, fox and other critters was a challenge and fun to boot. However, when it comes to the taking of wolf fur, it is very difficult to get the job done and you best have a heep of traps set out also, not just 4 or 5 sets.

Wolf traps are pretty expensive. The trap and chain for one set may cost $150. Can't afford too many at that price. The only trapper to catch a wolf last year in the Salmon region had 5 sets and caught 3 wolves.

Re: Idaho Wolf Trapping

While wolf trapping is and can be a whole other level,its not rocket science.A lot of the new units available in Idaho give you great opportunity's to capitolize on unwary wolves.MB-750's are a great wolf trap and they run around $60 for a trap with the Whitman drag ready to go.
I had 7 blind sets on some known wolf circuits and snapped a black the first 3 days.Likely more as they crossed 2 more sets but I was frozen out.Time is the biggest factor,your married to running and checking the line.
