    Is anyone having any success calling in wolves? I have heard stories about people calling them in but was wondering if anyone has some first hand experiences to share with others on how to locate these critters and get more of them on the ground.

    People have said that elk calling, both bugeling and cow calling has brought them in.

    I have found that often they are very shy of a predator call, but they love the hurt pup sound.

    Awesome Elk pics Rooster, Looks like most are older pics. Have the wolves put you out of business down there?

    I have yet to find one of my old elk carcasses, after going back a few days or weeks later, that wasn't completely worked over by wolves. I would say anything that smells like elk.

    I called one in last May while trying to call a bear. Was just using a Johnny Stewart mouth call the same way I call coyotes. Too bad the season wasn't open then.

    Sorry Roy,
    Don't want to lose my hunting rights over a dirt-bag wolf. I hate what they are doing to our wildlife but I am not one to break or even bend the rules.
    Thanks, Kirk
