    Default 3rd Kenai Wolf Down

    Went out last weekend and worked an old area where I had killed another wolf back in January. I called for 15 minutes before the ravens started to show. In all of my wolf encounters, 90% have had ravens show with the wolves working their way in. I have to believe the ravens follow the wolves and eat the scraps or dine when they are off the kill. At about the 18 minute mark, I heard some suffling in the snow at my six o'clock. When I turned to my left, the wolf was already at 25 yards to my left. It was focusing on the Mojo Puppy. As I raised my rifle, it turned and looked at me, only to turn back again at the puppy. I thumped her in the chest. 95 pound female....No lice, unlike others on the Kenai.

    the first was taken at 40 yards. It was filmed and can be seen at www.youtube.com/reeseoutdoors ......The second was taken at 20 yards. I used cottontail distress on this one.

    Interesting, all could have been taken with a rimfire. I am going rethink my plan. Thanks

    Good observation, I watch Ravens for Fur too.

    They are great at letting other predators come along as well, Beras Wolverine and other Wolves watch Ravens too......as well, when we lived in camp, and caribou were around, Ravens followed us too.

    Is there a big problem with Lice on Wolves in the Kenai?? Of the Wolves we caught last winter only one had a noticable ammount of vermin, not common here, but not unheard of.

    Good Catch

    He used a Mini-14 in the video, so I assume .223.
