    Question Wolves in GMU 20

    Ever since I moved up to Alaska a couple years ago, I've wanted to see a wolf. And all the times I've hunted (rabbits,bear,moose,birds) I've never seen one. Is it a rare occurance to see a wolf? What's the best tactics to use when wolf hunting? How can I find a pack?
    If some of our teenage thrill seekers really want to go out and get a thrill.
    Let them go up into the north west and let them tangle with a Grizzly bear
    or Polar bear or brown bear and get that effect that will cleanse the soul -----Fred Bear

    Read this and this to find good locations, get a trapping license, and bait them.

    Default Gut piles

    The easiest way to get a wolf is to combine your wolf hunt on an already scheduled caribou/moose hunt by you or you can go along with another hunter. You/they want an animal down early in the hunt, and then you set up a good 1/2 mile away, and scope your gut pile. They may hit it the next day or it could take a couple. Sometimes they wont go right up on it till your scent weakens around the kill. Thats your best chance. I have seen at least 4 packs on my gut piles in years past but I have only ever seen 1 wolf NOT on a gut pile in 23 yrs of hunting up here. They are smart, and weary.

    gogoalie, I think I'll be up your way once we get a bit more snow and my new RMK gets here. I know I'll be at least to St. Mary's and hunting. I'll PM you sometime, or you can when it is prime to go wolfing there.
