    Wolf hunt

    Is there anyone here who would guide for a wolf hunt on a budget?

    I don't know about here on the site, but I know there a number of outfitters in Idaho. We have long seasons, and you are welcome to take one. Just don't bring it back. . Seriously, wolves are hard to find unless you are out there all the time. Prices that I have seen very between 2500 to 3500 for a stand alone five day hunt. So it really depends on what you mean by "a budget."

    You might consider an elk hunt in Frank church and hunt wolves along with it.

    Couple buddies and I are doing research on hunting wolves this coming winter. We prefer DYI but it might be tough due to terrain and weather. We prefer to call them in like we coyote hunt. Once we get more research done and have a plan I can pass on all my info to anyone else interested. I'm not expecting easy success but know I don't have zero chance waiting for one to show up here in Nebraska.
    Sure would be nice to figure out a way for the average guy to have a chance at one if he is willing to work at it.

    I think your best bet will be to find areas where deer and elk winter. S and SE of Frank Church wilderness, Salmon, Challis, along the MT border I think would be good general areas to start. Call the biologists and findout where elk winter. I dont know that country so Im not alot of help. Im close to the northern part of Idaho and havent found a good area around here yet.

    I know a guy who went on a guided trip out of Dillon, MT into the Idaho side for wolves. They didn't get one that trip, but I think a guide is almost necessary for success, unless you local. They have such a huge range and are very cagey. I was working in St. Maries, ID and they were really complaining about the wolves, but Musket Man is a lot closer to that area.

    I will check out those areas. Thank you. We will probably stop in Wyoming and hunt coyotes for a few days on the way up so if no wolves the trip won't be a total bust. I am sure the biologist for the area could be a big help. Possibly game warden will have very current info on pack locations at that time. Lots of different places to get help, just need to utilize them. If it appears to be all but impossible, we probably check with outfitters and might go that route for the wolf part of the hunt. I would hope to have a reasonable chance at a wolf, say 25% chance at a 500 yard or less shot at one on a 5 day hunt.
