Is that beautiful or what! Thanks for sharing that great picture. I can't wait to get back out there the first week of September!

The last time I was over there several years ago we saw like 13 yotes in 8 days of deer hunting and we weren't even calling them, so I hope they are still there to have a little fun.
I hate to cast a cloud on your fun, but I have a friend who spends his time getting paid as a government trapper and he blasts the crap out of the yotes around Worland. When the snow flies, he has his trusty Bennelli and lots of ammo as they fly over and shoot them from the air. Hopefully you can still find a few left overs and wack em when you are out here.

Re: Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains – The Outdoorsman’s Family Resort

I wonder if he's the same fellow who shot several wolves over in the mountains a couple years ago that had come down out of Montana all the way over around TenSleep. I have that friend in Worland that I mentioned to you before and I met one of his friends that has a son doing that work. I'll bet maybe it's the same guy because I don't think there are that many of them. All I know is that the area we were in way over at the east end of Devils Slide near the Bluebank Road was loaded with yotes 3 years ago when we hunted that unit.

Could be the same person, I know my friend spend quite a bit of time on the south end of the Big horns trying to get a couple of problem wolves. They were killing sheep and then would head out at a full trot and a couple hours later they would be 40 miles away. Sometimes there are lots of yotes out on the Bluebank road, there just aren't as many after the airplane flyover and benelli lead poisoning.

Re: Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains – The Outdoorsman’s Family Resort

Yep, that has to be the same guy we're talking about. He got 2 out of what they thought was a pack of about 8 and they think one was the alpha male. He had a collar on that was put on him up in Montana north of Yellowstone Park, so tjhat shows how far they will move to establish new territory. They killed a bunch of sheep on the ranch next to where I hunt and a bunch of calves south of there about 20 miles or so. There is still at least one in the area because we found a big track in the mud along a fence we were working on last September that is not to far from where the sheep were killed. They have really kept it out of the news for obvious purposes.

Re: Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains – The Outdoorsman’s Family Resort

There are a lot more wolves in the Big Horns than anyone is talking about. They don't get any attention until they start killing livestalk. One of the trappers best friends owns a whole bunch of sheep that got killed. Over 100 at last count. Wolves are hard to catch, that is why they were poisoned out years ago. Hopefully by the end of the year, Wyoming will have an agreement with the fish and wildlife service and we will be able to start killing them.
