Way under gunned man. Wolves need at least 338 caliber and up....... I guess if you can get them inside 50 yards you'll be ok.Are these Werewolves in London? Cuz that's a different ballgame.
I'll be in Idaho soon and have a wolf tag. Hopefully my 300WM works. It only shoots a 212 gr with 76.5 gr of H1000.
Got to hear this too. Never heard of anyone in Idaho killing 12 via hunting in one hunt. It takes most people a life time to Kill that many wolves and most get 1 or 2 max. Trappers, they may get a handful per year at most. I think the quota for trapping is like 10.You Guys killed 12 wolves...WOW Then tell us some stories.
And here you cannot hunt off man made or placed bait. You can hunt off carcass found tho, just has to be natural. You can kill a wolf off bear bait, incidental, but wolves don't seem to be attracted to bear bait that much.There are a LOT of wolves inn Alberta. I have seen cases of two or three shot off of one bait when the pack comes in, even seen a couple of cases of 2 to 3 taken when the pack was out on a lake. The best wolf guides I know of take maybe 10-15 in a whole year, with extensive baiting and top notch calling.
To get 12 wolves in one or two weeks of hunting; WOW, I would LOVE to see the pictures of that and hear the stories.
We are talking about 6 people who have been putting in for tags every year since they opened the season in Idaho. Generally you are lucky to get one tag for a couple and that's not every year.Got to hear this too. Never heard of anyone in Idaho killing 12 via hunting in one hunt.

The post was confusing and post 26 doesn't really help. Who digs through or remembers something that far back? It appeared you were in Idaho hunting killed 12 wolves, seemed like an epic hunt. One for the books and camp fire stories. No matter, still really pretty dang good results overall. People really underestimate how hard they are to hunt. I've already screwed up one opportunity to fill a tag this year. A couple weeks ago I had a sheet show going on with a wolf at 500 at first light. I could see it in binos but struggled with the scope. When I finally got it located in the scope it dropped into a small ravine and ghosted. I was very annoyed with myself. That one had bounty of 2000.00 due to the location. I saw another wolf at 1800 and pursued it into a big drainage, but again, it ghosted.We are talking about 6 people who have been putting in for tags every year since they opened the season in Idaho.

Go back and read my first post #26
Well, that clarifies things a lot. Still really good results but makes FAR more sense over 13 years. Still, good on you guys for thinning them out.In the early years when they opened the season up you would see family packs. They got smart when they figured out that you were not with the save the wolves group taking pictures. Just like hunted coyotes they disappear fast. I had to look up the first season and it was clear back in 2009.
So I should have said that it took 13 years for the six people at the thanksgiving party to collectively shoot 12 wolves. That's not even one per year with a few people putting in for it. Yes, I've even not filled tags! The best plan is to figure out group outings like snowmobiling and just carry your rifle just in case you see something. Snowmobiling is always a hoot!
