Re: wolf help
I was hunting the Fairfield area a week ago and had a hard time getting around due to the snow they had just received. A few suggestions, 1st, check on Idaho Game & Fish site and see if the quota hasnt been filled for Southern Mountains unit. Two wolves left last I checked. 2nd, because of the snow, either bring a snow machine or have a line on one when you get there. Fairfield had a couple of feet and farther north, Stanley had three feet. We had a lead on some coming in on livestock but couldnt get to them. 3rd, be willing to ask the locals on where to locate some. Most are helpful. Just respect their property. Alot of private land in that area. My thoughts on a rifle round. I use a 6mm with a 55 gr NBT on coyotes out here in the west. I figure a wolf is a bigger coyote so I took a 25.06 with a 100 gr NBT bullet to shoot the wolf. Didnt get the chance this time but going back next week. Hope this helps, Good hunting!
