Seriously, because I'm only a days drive from Montana.

The Wolves of Russia is also worth reading but more statistics than an enjoyable read. My personal observation is that a couple guys can have some success in a small area with a pack or two but it will take several people working at it to make much difference in a large area. The prey base was large to begin with and the pack areas were smaller. They will get larger as the prey base dwindles. This will make it harder to find them. A good rifle with 700-1000 yds capability is a must. Just my observation.
I would second reading 'Alaska's Wolf Man'. Besides just being a good read that most any hunter and outdoorsman should enjoy, it is an education on wolf behavior from someone who got to know them quite well.

Hunter that are on the sidelines on this one need to get off the sideline and get in the game,
