    Default First Wolf

    Well I got my first wolf while moose hunting, not much to tell on the actual harvest as it was over in a flash. I was up above on a ledge glassing for moose and didn't move for about 8 hours. 8 hours of not moving can play tricks with my brain so I had to convince myself there really was a wolf jogging by at 75 yards. bolted the action bang it was over way to quick but believe me I am stoked about it. The harvest may not have been overly exciting but the hunt all together was. As sweet as the wolf was a better experience yet was sharing the trip with a great guy that I can sit around the fire with and share back and forth memories about hunts and family, talk theology, pray together and connect as men and friends. I am truly blessed by my friends and I hope all of you get the experience around the camp fires I have gotten this year. happy hunting and good luck out theirBLACK WOLF.jpg

    Let's see moose hunting but shot a wolf.... Fur isn't prime, can't eat the meat. What is the moral to this story? In two months that wolf hide would bring a couple hundred for some good long-haired fur...what a waste.

    I have to agree with 4merguide. I also can't understand why you had to chime in so negative, p-cub. Does it only have value if you can sell it? Congrats on your first wolf J. I hope to kill a short haired one and send a link to pipercub.

    That hide would be hanging proudly on my wall, I wouldn't care what its worth in terms of money.

    Wow Jn,
    I'm thinking, you must have some Good Theology, to be able to walk out Patience like that,...
    (ha ha,... seriously tho, 8hrs ?!?)

    Nice Job on the Beautiful Wolf,... you are walking in some Favor there for sure

    are you planning on a mount of some kind, or a nice rug ?? (I'm somewhat envious)
    Thanks for the pics and story

    Kodiak,
    yep 8 hours. I put my butt down at 6am and shot him at about 2:30pm. I was over looking a large valley glassing multiple hillsides until my eyes wanted to bleed for moose. Last year seen one bull and several cows. This year we didn't see ONE moose alive. Only 2 dead ones from wolves. One yearling and one young adult.
    As for mount possibly a rug but I'm not going to make that call until I get the hide back from alphas and really evaluate it. Fur seemed lovely to me back I'm not a fur guy so I don't have much expirence there. If I deem it unrug worthy it will go on den wall as a conversation piece.
