    Been doing this for years. I use a hammer with the face of the hammer flat to the wall, lightly tapping on the wall until I find a solid section of drywall, you'll feel and "hear" the difference when yo find the stud. Once the stud is found, I transfer the found solid section down to masking tape on the floor, then go 16 or 24 inches (depending on the stud layout) on center from that point on, transferring the marks up the wall with a level off of the masking tape. If you are working with an unfinished floor skip the masking tape and mark the sub-flooring.

    I have put countless blocks in for this through the years Building Homes for people ! The 3/4" plywood is also a great idea !! Just take pictures for later reference .

    Finding a Lion Outfitter is the easy part... Being successful on Wolves would be a whole different story... We can not bait them... So just the Chances of seeing one in a limited time of a regular lion hunt would be really really low on average... If you are serious about Montana maybe put in for one of the limited quota areas in the 100 or 200 areas.... If you draw then find an outfitter...JMO .. Dave

    My buddy is an outfitter in Idaho. I generally help out. He has gone 100% this year on lions and some big cats at that. For wolves we have been hit or miss but he has put clients on them multiple times this year. Saturday we were both on wolves in different spots. A cat hunt with wolf supplemental is a great way to go.

    There is an outfitter in Idaho who could provide you a hunt for both lion and wolves. He has good dogs to run the cats, as well as lots of knowledge on the wolves. He is running an add here on the site also. [email protected] or just google richieoutfitter and idaho, which should bring up their site.
    Mike and Dawn Richie are GREAT folks to go with, and have both a large area in the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness as well as a good area in the Nationial Forest around Salmon Idaho. 208-756-3231. I have hunted with Mike and Dawn since 1998 and take all but a cat and the wolf, but been on the hunts when others took both. Anyway give a call, but they may be in the hills already for the Sept 15th elk opening. He WILL call back pretty soon.
