    Default North Pole wolf

    Is this a good sized wolf? Caught last night near North Pole.

    humm........ thought it was new as the date on the photo was yesterdays. Might be that the transfer of the photo created a new properties date.

    As far as I know there haven't been any wolf reports from the N-Pole area for over a month.

    Anyone else notice all the "Missing Dog" posters you see all around Fairbanks and North Pole each winter?? Especially during low snow years, I think several end up as wolf snacks!!!

    Regardless of who shot it, where it was shot and when it was shot, it is an impressive wolf to say the least. It looks like it would easily tip the scales over 150 lbs. That is my best guess anyhow. Thanks for posting.

    Received that same photo in an earlier email claiming it had been shot down in Idaho somewhere.

    I also got an email about the Idaho connection, said it was shot along with about a half dozen others on the Idaho wolf opener.

    The wolf is real but don't know the height of the guy. His relative works in the Inlet who showed me the pic.

    LOL, no doubt the wolf and the man are real....just not at the same place at the same time at the same scale....

    Maybe I'm just a skeptic, but lets assume the man weighs 180#. That would make that wolf over 200# at least right? Photoshop all the way...IMHO.
