    Thanks. Brian, it was a snare set with 4 snares put in their trail from 3 weeks ago. When wolves funnel down together when they walk they will leave a very noticable beat down trail and they will use this exact same trail the next time they travel thru. When you find these trails the best thing to do is look for where they come out from the open and go thru some brush or timber. When you find these area's it's best to go WAY past where they went in and once your in the timber, find their trail again and stay just with in eye distance of it and follow till you find area's that they give you and set your snare with as little disturbance as possible and then back out and look for another set location. An ideal set is to find a location to set in their trail and also set if you can set several places left and right of your set so when one is caught they jump off trail and spread out. When wolves travel the younger wolves will be in front of the line with the larger and alpha's in the rear (alot like caribou). This includes even if it's just a pair, the larger wolf will always travel behind the younger or female wolf.

    Thanks smokey, I'll proabbaly let her go for around $275.00-$300.00. The going rate is anywhere from $250-$700, depending on condition, size, and coloring.
