    From the pictures those wolves have been eating well and often. We have several mixes (read that sub-species) of wolves here in Alaska with the largest being from the Denali area. Those are frequently found to be 145 pounds and more. Just reminds us not to get too serious about hunting then on foot with the ol' .22LR in deep snow unless you have several well feeding 50 round magazines. They pretty much leave us 2-legged critters alone here but anything else that walks, runs, flys, or crawls is 'dog food.' The moose on the Kenai are having a rotten time because of the increasing number of grey wolves, black and brown bears, Lynx and coyotes that are present. Low fur prices and high fuel cost have kept a lot of trappers/hunters at home. Maybe these pictures will help get us back out this winter. Thanks for sharing those awesome pictures.gun)---------------------

    on the 22lr...i have taken several wolves with a 22lr using cci stingers and wouldnt hesitate on doing it again. wolves are thin skinned and light muscled ....theyr all about speed and offense {teeth/jaws}. in Alaska they are considered big game and the only time you can use a rimfire is under a trapping liscenes . so if your pursuing them with a hunting liscense you better pick a centerfire . as for prime round for the job i think it would be
    gun) the one you shoot best.you might think about exit hole size if you want the pelt.
