Wyoming Wolves

I ran into a friend of mine today at the rifle range who is a government trapper. I asked him, "got any wolves lately" and he just grinned and told be he got 3 wolves yesterday in the predator area outside of Meeteetse. He said there were 9 wolves and the biggest one he shot was huge. He seemed a little sad that he didn't get all 9, but the elk will be happy this winter none the less to have 3 less of these critters chasing and eating them.

    Pretty sure his fixed gun is an ackley 6.5, but I think he was in a plane shooting wolves.

    I think I may have seen him flying. I was deer hunting not far from there the other day and someone was flying low like they were looking for coyotes. could have been your buddy looking for wolves.

    The most recent "Range magazine has an article about a man that's flown control for years. His best season was like 1200 coyotes. The picture of his plane buried in fur is awesome.

    He told me he was flying just west of upper sunshine lake, and when he is flying, he has his trusty benelli in hand. He said on of the wolves was very large. Looks like I will need to have a rifle in the sled when we go Ice fishing this winter.
