    My buddy just finished making this target. Ar500 steel and it weighs 275 pounds.
    Meet "Wolfy."

    So Randy, You going to hang it from a zip line so you can practice the running shots? We all know you can hit them standing still.:D

    Or you can bring it my way, I have a great road we could put that on where we could give road hunters wolf shooting lessons?

    There is more need for this then a guy thinks! If I could have hit, or have half a notion that I could have hit a running wolf, I could have about 15 wolves stacked up this year! If they are not sitting on their butt looking for a guy, then they are doing that distinctive wolf lope!
    I love this target, I am just glad that I did not have to buy that chunk of steel!

    Oh one more thing, frozen coyotes, if they are stood up in the right spot( and safe spot) can make a boring day into a down right hilarious day!

    I certainly do not want to hijack this thread about an awesome wolf target, but I have many frozen coyote stories.
    I will keep it brief but my favorite story is one loaded with poor judgement. I was younger and will use that as an excuse! We set one up smack in the middle of the dirt road leading to and from a friends house. This friend was guiding elk hunters and driving to work, very early every morning.
    We laughed and giggled all morning about his struggles to get this dog killed. Well we laughed until we found out that he had no hunters that morning and then our humor turned to panick as we started thinking that another female member of the family who worked in town, might just see that coyote in the road as she left the ranch, and try to kill a rock hard torpedo shaped block of ice closely resembling a coyote with her car! I figured that the nose was exactly about mustang radiator height!

    Well it all turned out okay! Another friend had seen the coyote from afar and drove like a crazy man to get it killed before our original target individual could get it! He ended up getting stuck trying to park his truck to get the shot! In all his comotion he figured it out and relocated the coyote to his skinning shed!
