So i would like to start this post by saying thank you to the Alaska Trappers Association, specifically the South Central chapter and to Jim at Alaska Range. I was a new Trapper this season and if it hadn't been for the basic Trapper course in October and for knowledgeable people sharing tips, I'm sure I would have had little to no success. Although I didn't catch a ton, I appreciate every catch and opportunity.
With a final total of a couple nice beaver and marten, and a mix of incidental ermine and a few squirrels, I looked forward to next season until my friend and I stumbled upon this beautiful wolf Monday night, which I took was by rifle thanks to the quick action of my friend who provided some communicative distractions (rifle, I know, but this is also a predator hunting forum so I thought I would share). I am proud of this harvest no matter how she was taken so, critics, take it easy please. Looking forward to next year already.
