Just remember, the best way to bag a wolf, is with an MB-750. When WI had a wolf season, 80% were trapped.

Yes Wis. did a good job slimming down the wolf population.... I Thank Them for it......
While on a successful moose hunt in Ontario Can. I talked with the outfitter alot...
lots a wolves up there and he trapped a lot of them off a snowmobile....He said they were very hard to trap..... he wouldn't even get off his snow machine as wolves use snow trails as highways when snow gets deep....just lean back set the trap.... making it as scent free and blended in with snow tracks... some would still walk around the trap... We saw a few while hunting...and plenty sign...

I trapped full time in the UP using leg holds and snares January-February for coyotes and fox .....as far as catching wolfs I caught 1-3 every year in leg holds but caught 4-10 in snares and that was not even trying to catch any....
Can say one thing catch and release a wolf they pretty much never come back to that area....only problem a different pack would move into the area....

The wolf doesn't live with you...you live with the wolf....

I did a study in the early 70's and did a report....myself wouldn't trust a wolf any percentage....
EXACTLY, a wolf IS NOT a dog... My cousin had a hybrid back in the 70's, it jumped out of her pickup and attacked a little neighbor girl... All UNPROVOKED, obviously it was put down... Been an English Mastiff owner for 38 years so I know large DOGS.... Wolf's aren't pets---PERIOD!!!

I have been around "Wolf Dogs" as you can see in #114.

States have different rules on owning a "Wolf Dog" has to be a minimum % of Dog DNA.

Dogs came from Cannabis Lupus "Grey Wolf" about 130,000 years ago.

My thoughts are Wolf should never be "Cross Bred" They do NOT make pets and nothing but trouble. If they get loose they can breed with other dogs and don't need that. Almost all Wolf/Dog owners like them as puppies, but once they mature, owners can't handle them and either put them down or give to a Wolf Sanctuary.

Same with CoyDogs. Coyote/Dog only trouble and get a wild breed that does not have the natural fear of man.



Back to Wolves

Nature has (HAD) a way to balance life between wolves, bear, deer, elk. Man introduced livestock into the equitation and wolves/bears then had another food source. Man did not like that and tried to eradicate wolfs. It has been two hundred years between the battle of man & wolves.

Man with all their faults are now trying to be Nature and control it. Man that has no idea about life in the wild is making laws and decisions on how many wolves there should be and where they can live. Bringing wolves back from almost extinction is good in the natural habitat, but INTRODUCTION of wolves into areas where they never where is not a good idea for the other animals in that area.

Too bad these environmental & conservation groups are just looking for taxpayer dollars to fund their projects and salaries.
When we had millions of buffalo the wolves had something to eat. When the bison were shot out the wolves turned to everything else...

A sad follow-up: I did not get a Wolf. I did not get a Mountain Lion. I did not get a Black Bear. I stumbled on a Mountain Lion den. Elsewhere, I saw signs of Mountain Lion and Black Bear. And a bull Elk seemed upset with me.

Despite not bringing an animal home I brought back experience and memories. This was my first backpack hunting trip like this. I had no expectations since I didn't know what I was doing. Nobody to teach me. No guide. Just a lot of Internet reading and a desire to go.
how long did you hunt wolves? what rifle did you use? thanks. ron
