Re: What is working to locate or attract wolves?

it was bound to happen with this group....from here on we'll have two camps disagreeing on how far behind the collar equals proper shot placement. LOL! As far as attracting them I understand if you go into any of the designated recovery areas, and do anything that remotely resembles trying to make a living they'll show up.

Let me start.. For these animals I would use a real "hunting bullet" constructed so that it will penetrate deep and exit leaving the same size hole as the entrance. Probably something of the solid copper family. That way you don't have the worries of the dreaded "DRT" syndrome....

Re: What is working to locate or attract wolves?

I was out a couple days ago and it was day 11 wolf hunting, see fresh tracks almost everytime. Trying to howl them, then the hurt pup. I got out to howl and I heard them. I got closer and I howl w/ my elk call and tube. I really had them going, a bunch lit in, sounded like I was within 1/4 mile, but I was in thick trees and was never able to pin them down.Spent all afternoon, looping around in my jeep and did not find them again. They are hard to catch up with, since it is so timbered, a logger told me this pack WAS 17 earlier in the season

Damn it you need more back up members. I offer my experience they are never exactly consistant, but I have found they have certain avenues of travel and escape. I also know that if you can hear them howling and get as close as possible before you howl it gives them less time to investigate you, or get down wind. Everyone probably knows this, but it seams that they will sit down and howl for quite a little while, and the ground will be just matted with tracks. This "randevous spot" will often be in the same area on a ridge or knob. Around here they love to travel through burns and small logged areas within the timber. Can a guy get a horse through the timber, or is it too thick or blown down?
Good luck ventilating mutts
