Wolves are not quite as abundant as in past seasons but we still have some healthy populations in some of our packs. They are an essential part of our ecosystem and we have no desire to eliminate them. They are however, a competitor for some of the same animals we hunt and we do like to have some control. A wolf needs an average of 6 pound a meat daily to stay healthy. If 1 wolf is only healthy for 300 days a year that’s 1800 pounds of meat or probably equivalent to 3-4 cow moose. If our hunters take only 5-8 wolves in a season it does make a difference. We do most of our wolf hunting in the winter, generally late February and March. At that time the wolves are starting to breed, on the move a lot and more likely to come to a call, be it a wolf call or a predator call. When we are hunting in the fall we often see wolves and they can make an excellent trophy.
