    Default Wolf hunting on the north slope

    I will be on a Haul Road Caribou hunt starting Monday. Being from Wyoming, and unable to hunt wolves here, we are all interested in taking a wolf as well. Is that an unreasonable expectation on the North Slope?

    Default rare

    Chances at a Wolf I would say are rare ... but with the tag only costing $30 ... why not !!!

    They are a fairly common occurrence in the winter months chasing Bou around.. the chandlar area... i have seen them in mid summer running the road. IF you get in far enough from the crowds... by several miles... you may very well be able to howl a few up...but they are the wariest of the wary...

    Hubby shot one on his way back down from Caribou hunting a few years ago, she was running along the roadside, alone. She was taken south of the Yukon, for those wondering. North of the Yukon is archery only within 5 miles of the Dalton Highway.

    Default Ivishak

    friend of mine saw a few up the Ivishack, probably have to get away from the crowds some to find the wolves but they are there.

    Default 5 mile buffer

    you are correct that it is archery only within 5 miles BUT with a trappers license you are allowed to shot wolves within the corridor i ddnt believe it either until i talked to f and g

    keep in mind trapping license and methods are only good during trapping season. Doesn't matter how you can take an animal if it is not in season.

    River rat is correct it must be trapping season to qualify for trapping otherwise it falls under the big game hunting regs and those rules must be followed
