Oh, yes a lot of minnesota's take is trapping. Way more effective method IMO. NR also cannot really trap in MN, my last post was meant generally. I'm sure ID has more public land, but most of MN's public land is is wolf country. The minimum pop they have planned is somewhere 1500-2000 or something but estimates just a couple years ago were in the 3000-4000+ range which I believe far more. Look at how easily we fill the quota, I doubt that is happening with the population at the lower end of the estimates. I think you may find the wolves more evenly distributed in MN than ID as well. The prey base is distributed similarly as is the cover. I would say you may be more likely to SEE on out west just because it's more open. Much of wolf country in MN is very thick. Wolf hunting anywhere is a low odds game.
