I posted a picture of this critter on the general board but figured I should put it up here for all you Idaho hunters to see.

Caught this wolf in the act of devouring a trophy game animal and was able to get a snap shot off with my trusty old 30-30 just as it was going out of sight.

Glad we are able to fight back this fall instead of having our hands tied. Kudo's to the state of Idaho for caring about the future of hunting!

Good job man! They need to issue wolf tags like bobcat tags in Cali. By the dozen! Or do they?

Thanks for the comments everybody!

I am so happy in the photo both because I just killed my first wolf and that the tide has turned for us in the hunting community. I have been following this issue for a long while and it is great that we as hunters don't have our hands tied any more. It is a good feeling to fight back! I don't hate wolves but I hate anti hunters who use them to fight their battles.

Are you able to hunt them?

Yes but it has been rather difficult , In my county we have a quota of 22 only 4 have been shot, 2 by my friends. It is so thick here and they seem to be very smart from hunters. could be some problems with the "season" on them being open for multiple years now. They are constantly getting in trouble eating cats, dogs, miniature horses, and cattle.

Keep after them! I was in the field with a wolf tag less than 4 hours and there they were! I talked to numerous locals that have targeted them a lot and have yet to get a shot. I am going back up there in February to look for number 2!

Thanks again everybody!



So, once you got one, what do you do with it?

I considered a full body mount but decided to get a rug made since it is easier to hang in the house. Didn't do anything with the carcass but I wish I had saved the urine as I have now learned it is a very good wolf attractant. Will be packing a syringe next time...

I hope to be in more pictures like mine! :)

They are just doing what they are built to do and if we would have ended up with the number that was originally agreed on things wouldn't be as out of hand as they are.

Good on you for taking that wolf out of the gene pool, Congratulations!!
They're "reintroducing" wolves here in AZ, and we can't hunt them, yet, but most folks can't wait to start. They've devastated our deer and elk populations, and also impact the turkey and other game.

By shooting one wolf you saved 9.9 elk 5.7 deer a year. Every wolf hunter in Idaho keep up the good work. I looked on Idaho game and fish web site and saw that 304 wolves have been harvested this season. Keep saving elk and deer one wolf at a time

It is looking like Wyoming will pass the bill this year. That means we will be hunting the wolves.

Nice! you saved 9.9 elk and 5.7 deer a year or that is the report that has been put from Wyoming in the wolf management plan. Keep up the good work Idaho. Saving elk and deer one wolf at atime.

Well, thanks for all the comments everybody! I wish I could post the good pics of the wolf but my son is still working on getting an article published about our hunt and the impact wolves have had on the part of Idaho we hunt. She was a really beautiful animal! Just glad Idaho is stepping up to manage their numbers.
