    I was elk hunting in the Thorofare a couple years ago. We heard wolves every night howling which was pretty cool. We saw fresh tracks and scat almost everyday. In a week up there, no one in camp saw a wolf. The outfitter said the few times he see's them each season, they're usually running or at long distances while glassing.

    Buddy and I have decided to go for a semi-guided hunt for wolf with mileshighoutfitters. Decided a DIY would have pretty slim chance of success. 5 day hunt with guide for day and a half. First guided hunt for us ever. It will be interesting.

    I just checked out their web-site. That looks awesome. Good luck.

    yep, just put some spikes on your grille guard. Then you don't have to look for them. Mad Max Idaho.

    That is kindof scary though. I am not sure I would want to go looking for a wounded wolf of in the woods.

    no kidding, said the trooper thought he was up to no good cuz he said he didnt know what he hit and cop couldnt understand how ya couldnt see what ya hit when it did so much damage to front of car so they looked on hwy for it. just this last weekend someone shot an 11 year old grizz in same area mistaking it for a black bear, id hate to be that fella.

    oops! that could be some big trouble. It can be hard to tell sometimes. I have only seen one grizzly sow ever, but in the heat of the moment I can see how it could be mistaken for a black bear. I have heard that Idaho gets a lot of the cinnamon colors, too.

    most of the bears i see are blonde or cinnamon. some of those big cinnamon colored black bear boars do look alot like a grizz, even more so when their front pads are unlevel giving them that extra hump in back. but... this guy did the right thing and called fish and game and told them instead of hiding it, hopefully that works in his favor.

    Was this guy hunting for Black Bear over bait? If so, I doubt G&F will cut him any slack on the mistake, you're supposed to be 100% sure before you shoot. And he evidently wasn't, if he was hunting a baited site and had binoculars. Maybe it was spot & stalk? Same thing applies there however.
