Re: wolf help

If you can get them to howl then you know where they are, go and kill them. My friend and his girlfriend have killed three wolves in the two seasons. All with a 22-250 and mine with a 25-06 115 Berger. They die pretty easy but are half hair, so do not hold high. If you can get them howling keep them going and move in. Good luck!

Re: wolf help

Wolf hunting in Idaho is plentiful and abundant in the right areas. In the north, such as were we are, Clearwater county, Wolf's are abundant and often a nuisance. Just last week, while building a chicken coop, we had a mother and pup try to coax our dogs away not more than 100 yards away. They are getting to be not so skiddish around humans and my 2 cents on a call, Nothing works better than a cow and Calf Elk call. The prey in distress calls are used so heavy, they often don't work in this area but, Elk or Mosse calk and cow calls work flawless.

My weapon of choice has been a 243 AUK pushing a 58 Gr V-Max at 4150 through a 1-10 twist Hart.

If your ever up near this way, Clear water county, shoot me a PM and I would be glad to give you a up close review of what a Wolf looks like through our Binos or if in season, through a scope.

Regards,
Ken

Re: wolf help

What to hunt wolves with? They are thick skinned but not anymore than a deer. For me it's not important to drop one in its tracks when the snow's on. A well placed bullet out of a .243 should do the trick. I have a 6-284 and have hunted wolves with the 70 Nosler as well as the 87 grain Berger. Speed kills!!!

A few years ago there was a story in Small Caliber News about an Alaskan wolf hunter who was successful living out back and killing wolves...usually over bait on ice as well as calling, and not far from his cabin. And he was using a 17!!!
