Got back from NM just in time. Woof tag is $11.50 good through 12/31 The 270 AM should be about perfect for such a critter. The take allotment is 2 in my elk hunting area which includes my back yard. And yes there have been woofs there. Maybe a Wolf forum otta be added to the big game list. The wolfs are being treated a big game, apparently. Idaho is gonna make a million bucks on this deal. 11.50 X 40,000 tags (I'm not sure of the # of tags being sold) ought to finance a bunch of wild life management. I hope it turns out that way.
