Plenty of Wolverine
....Plenty of wolverine out there,especially on the Kenai!...
....We trap part time...got 3 last year; one this year...with total of 4 sets.
.....This one , with a snare, instead if the intended 330...
Very nice. Any idea on how much that wolverine weighed?

...We have a full body mt,and 2 other rugged on the wall, from previous years.
:Our main reason for posting this, is first, to connect up with/support other trappers and hearing what is going on around the state...and to let the word get out to the biologists and the public that the state -especially the Kenai wolverine population- is NOT at risk.
There is currently talk of the Kenai being closed to wolverine.
We are not the only people/trappers/fish and game people who hold that view.
(I am not f&g)
..Thanks for posting,Matt...
Are you a trapper?
Great wolverine! 40 pounds is a hog of one.
Beautiful animal. One of the bigger ones I've seen in a while.

I wanted to add that we are not the only ones successfully trapping on the Kenai....Around the Seward area, alone,there were 4 other wolverine ,that we know of, trapped this season.
Beautiful wolverine, nice job
Sweet catch! Any pics of the set? I'd love to get into trapping...
I am in full agrement with Plenty of Wolverine. I am also a Kenai Mountains Trapper and last year had a take of two and matched it this year with one final check yet to come. A fourty pound wolverine is a serious trophy congratulations !!! Last year I caught a 22# and a 24# this year a 22# and a 32#. I would also be interested in your set if you wanted to share. What do you think of the Biologist in Homer offering $50 for a carcass? It seems that he is on our side what do you think?

Hey,congraduations on YOUR wolverine!!...This is the kind of feedback,also, that we were hoping for!.......Good luck with the tail-end of your season, and I will be posting tomorrow.-Good night....
Anyone looking at selling their green Wolverine hides, PM me if interested.
Wouldn't trust them
Pdickensen, in response to your question concerning the biologist in Homer, I wouldn't trust him. I don't personally know the man, but it seems to me that with the recent talk of shutting down the wolverine season on the Kenai, the state is looking for a reason or some excuse to do it, and they are going to find that excuse within the carcasses they are trying to buy. I have recieved the same letter from ADFG for the past three seasons. While I do believe that ADFG biologists have an important job to do, I also believe that the ADFG has a hidden agenda that is rooted in environmentalism (the green kind).
Sorry everyone....My last post saying I would be back "tomorrow" ended up being six weeks late!!-went to the Palmer gun show-then heck;all hell broke loose-
......To be brief...it's been a blur of homeschooling our 5 kids, sending off pelts, boiling out/bleaching skulls to mount(homeschool projects), thawing out/grinding meat to burger, lining out the sleds / mechanical bugs for next season...firewood, -you know how it goes...AND....and girding up and lining out my new SHEEP rifle for this Delta CUA sheep permit I drew this year...(am I stoked?!!!)......yeah....thought I'd post before the bears woke up -will busy again, then.....
-Hey, I was wrong ...that wolverine in the pic was 42 lbs...not 40-
-and; our F&G trooper here is an avid, successful and supportive hunter and trapper....he really condones that biologist's studies, inquiries, and reports....and, most of all, -his intentions.......( the one from Homer, you guys were refering to, and that I don't personally know, either....)
-Let's let this play out, and see what happens....BUT: most of all... PLEASE....anyone, like those of you all who have done so already here and posted results on your wolverine harvest...or, even sightings!....keep them coming!!.......And...don't forget- "TAKE A KID TRAPPING".......
Man! Busy girl!! I like your last comment best," take a kid trapping".
