    Default A couple wolves

    With season coming to an end for me I have some time here are a couple wolves I picked up this season.
    The first came at a bait station I have used for many years. I have snared several wolves in this spot over the yearsClick image for larger version.

    The second I saw standing in the river one day while checking traps. It seemed like it was trying to decide what to do. So I helped it decide it needed a ride home with me Nice big male Click image for larger version.

    Nice man! That male is a lunker for sure. Do you sell them? Might be good to get one to hang at the lodge, I haven't been able to get one here on POW.

    Thanks guys I don't spend much time trying to catch them but do try to find a few every year.
    Gooch, Sorry but my wife sews pretty much all the fur I get. I have started selling some of the excess but wolves are worth a lot more in the sewing.
    They were both nice sized the female was 92 or 94 I forget and the male went 103. I have caught bigger though, my biggest ever was 109 if memory serves me correctly.

    Hey Otterman, Nice pics of wolves. All my students were out this week had a ski meet. We will try getting a reply from the students when they come back next week. They may ask some more questions once they come up with them. I had they searching through a few forums and explaining one of the many uses they have. Thanks for replying.

    Hi there Otterman.
    I live down the bottom of the world from you.. the only predator we have that big is politicians and they went and made hunting them illegal.. dam it all!!! Anyway, can you please post some pics of the things your wife makes with the pelts? Do you preserve them yourself or have them done?
    I have so litle knowledge of how other inhabiants of this planet live and so little time to see everything... Thank you Al Gore for inventing the innernet and making it all possible.(tongue in cheek)
