    Default wolves

    Some of you may have seen these on the ATA Facebook page. My nephew walked into a big bait pile that he had surrounded with 18-20 snares on Friday and found he had the catch of a lifetime 8 wolves and a fox all in snares. I taught him and his brother when they were in high school talking trapping with them when they were here commercial fishing in the summer and they have become quite an accomplished trappers. They are about 100 miles N of me and have some snow this year. I'll be the first to admit I'm one proud Uncle

    That's remarkable, otterman. I need a teacher like you. That should put a dent in some numbers for the area.

    Wow! Most guys are lucky to see one wolf a season. That had to be exciting to walk in on all of those wolves. Congrats.

    HOLY, MOLY!!! That's a lot of wolves. Good job. I'm surprised they all just kept coming in after the first couple got snared.

    Wow, truly incredible! Did he mention if the sign seemed to indicate that he caught the whole pack, or if there were still many more out there? Either way thats surely a dent in the wolf population and a boost to the moose and caribou!

    This pack has been seen from the air and was 15-20 strong he said he could see where no less than 4 walked away from the set snow is hard as a rock and lacking so thats the best he could do.

    Nice! That outta help out the moose and caribou in that unit for awhile. I bet that was a real fun pack out as well. There's got to be 700-800 lbs. of critters to haul out of there. That's like hauling out a moose.

    If they are all frozen that would be a mess to haul. It looks like they are pretty flexible though as they are all laying flat. If the temps were warm, I'd be a bit concerned about green bellies. And stacking them on a sled would not help with keeping cool. I keep coming back to just marvel at the photos. Wish there were photos of the set itself.
