Wolves in Idaho

Postby aclumpkin » Sat Feb 25, 2012 1:38 pm

A buddy of mine sent me these pictures of some wolves in the north-western part of the US (he says Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming area). Apparently they still hunt it packs... so walking through the woods and being surrounding by 8 to 12 of them would probably not be a good thing :eek:

Anyone gone hunting for these monsters? My buddy says he wants to look into doing it and asked if I was interested. I am but just looking for some more info / comments / experiences.

Thanks!

Yep lots of wolves in Idaho now, they have become a real problem. I live in Idaho and most Idahoians welcome anyone to come here and shoot all you can. North Idaho has lots but they're not very easy to find and kill. They inhabit the back country for the most part. If someone is serious about getting a wolf I would look into the area around Grangeville of Elk City.

Thanks for the info Wirehair! :beer:

Getting a wolf that size is something I am interested in although I probably will never hear the end of it from my college buddies. I went to NC State... and we are the Wolfpack. I do have some mixed feelings about killing one of our mascots but I can't deny how awesome that huge wolf will look after I get it mounted and put in my office :biggrin:

Idaho has had a serious wolf problem for about 10 years. The liberal hippy conservationists tied Idaho Fish and Game's hands through federal court and we were not allowed to hunt them or control them at all while they continued to wipe out our elk herds. Last season was our second hunting season but the damage the wolves did to our elk herds will take years to recover from. You can currently purchase over the counter wolf tags but the hippys continue to fight to stop wolf hunting. Rumor has it that locals kill many wolves in my area which go un-reported. The SSS rule is alive and well in Idaho but the wolves continue to thrive.

Unless one bigger has been killed in the last few months, 135lbs is the biggest one killed in Idaho.

Long ago, there were wolves in Ireland. Your ancestors wiped them out for a reason.

From what I hear, they are hard to hunt in general. I believe that its normal to bait them and wait in a tree. I have not done it- yet. But its still quite legal in Canada, and I may have to put it on my bucket list.

Could they not be hunted with hounds?
