Re: How to hunt wolves?

Roy,
I am counting on you. I bought a tag. Just to frame and put on the wall. I am not confident that there will be another hunt after this year.
That said............
I am counting on you to get one. Preferably from the area around Island Park(my archery elk area every year). They have devastated the elk there. I would come over to try and fill my tag but I don't think I will have the time. If I do I will be using wounded deer call, coyote barks, and watching my back for humpback bears!
I would love to see the pics when you get one.
Dave

I would prefer to frame my wolf tag next to a tanned wolf hide

Re: How to hunt wolves?

Wolves will respond to calling but I have never seen or heard of them coming in fast like coyotes sometimes do. They generally come in slow and cautious
and may take up to an hour to check out the source of the call. Another tip on hunting them is watch for congreations of birds (crows, ravens, magpies) to locate their kills. If there is lots of prey the pack may not be on the kill long but
sometimes lone wolves will visit these kill sites, which they locate as well sometimes by the birds squawking.

Had a friend call one in a couple of days ago using a calf elk in destress, just about ran him over he shot it at 30 yrds.
I'm hoping to get out this week end and locate some, it sound like if you can locate them you can call them.

May be that where they haven't been hunted a lot they will come in fast, but, they learn fast too.

Re: How to hunt wolves?

Ya, I kinda expect the first one's to be easy and it seems like there are more young ones gettting shot first just like coyote calling. I have seen how hard they are to trap or snare so I'm expecting it to get tough.
I really want to target the breeding females as I think that would be the most effective members of the pack to kill to have the most effect on numbers.
I kinda lean to the spot and stalk long range kill just so I can be real selective about which member or members die.
Good idea with finding the kills, I can talk to some of the ranchers and they can put me on one fast that I could stake out on and maybe do a little coyote whining to get a territorial responce and pick up a adult.
