    wow, that's an incredible picture. I'm assuming from an aircraft. too bad you couldn't get in there with a smooth semi auto and thin out those moose eaters.

    If you wait untill they have all eaten, they cant run fast or far at all, more like lope away.........get 'em all
    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    I'm thinking it could be from a drone?

    Drone or a long shot from a Cub and a cropping would be doable pictures.

    Hard to stop thinging 7 at once would be a nice haul.....

    It looks like the clear gray standing over the moose has a tracking collar...

    What an awesome shot!

    I suspect we'll be seeing more like this as the camera wielding quadcopters reach ubiquity.

    I saw the collar too. Thinking any wolves in unit 13 wouldn't sit still for a cub at 30,000 feet!!

    I really don't think they'd sit still for any motor sound very near by....... That need to flee over rides the need for a full belly.

    The pic is so good that it almost looks like the guy was in a tree stand......but I doubt the trees around there were big enough. Hard to say is guess. If trailblazersteve would ever come back maybe he could enlighten us a little......

Reason #1 is because I doubt any wolf on the Denali Highway would be caught in the open in broad daylight. Reason #2 is because there are several white wolves in the photo which leads me to believe these wolves are located further up north (but I could be very wrong). And reason #3 because if it was taken on the Denali Highway I'm sure someone else would have chimed in already (like Claude) giving us a clue. I could be wrong though. Steve has been known to post some pretty cool stuff.

    I was told by a good friend that it was taken by a young women using her phone while building flight time hours. They spotted it from a ways out and planned a surprise fly over the way the kill was positioned. It was taken in Unit 13 and I was told the name of the creek was near the Denali Highway but I havnt found it yet. I will pm Claude and ask if he has heard of it...

    Amazing that they were able to let themselves be "surprised". Either that pic was taken a half second before they all bolted, or those are some pretty bold wolves.....

    I thought the same thing. First thing I thought was someone set a game cam up in a tree on a very fresh kill but that would be pretty high to put a cam. Don't know, I just thought it was a pretty cool pic. I do know the young lady, she bear hunted out of my bear stand a few years ago. I'll try to scrap up more info or possibly more pics. I did pm Claude as to the name of the creek. Waiting for a response..
