    Default 1st Wolf

    Went out calling with a co-worker's grandson yesterday. We called in this guy and 4 or 5 of his friends on our second set. I didn't see the others as I got tunnel vision when I saw this one. Too bad because my partner saw the rest as they scattered after my shot. There was a nice black one in the bunch.

    He was about 75 yards away and quartering toward me. I shot him with the .243 win in the pic using a Sierra 90 gr. FMJBT. Hit him in the shoulder, the bullet exited through the far side ribs and didn't tear up the hide. He limped about 30 yards before going down for good.

    Fur seems O.K but I don't have anything to gauge it against. I'll know when the tanning is done. There is a thin spot between the shoulders. I didn't see any bugs while skinning and I'm not itchy so I guess no flees.

    Nice job. If you don't mind me asking, what call were you using? Rabbit distress? Howls? Bird distress? Ravens?

    That's simply awesome. I've never had one come into a stand for me. They've howled in the distance, but no takers....yet... Looks like a big guy too, did you get a weight on him?

    Rabbit distress. We also had some crows gather around us and make a little noise, maybe that helped?

    did you get a weight on him?
    The guy I brought him to estimated 90 to 100 lbs. Didn't actually weigh him though.

    NICE!!!
    Sometimes tunnel vision is ok so that you can focus on one object. If I'd seen that many wolves I'd probably have turned to jello and not done anything. I've always wanted to hunt for wolves specifically, just have not had the chance to do so. The one I did get was by a chance encounter. I bet your partner was pretty j***ed.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Only about 10 minutes. I was just as surprised to see him as he was to get hit with my bullet... well, maybe he was a little more surprised.

    That's great ... sort of a dream scenario. 10 minutes. They couldn't of been too far from your set.

    Did you hike in very far, or snowmachine into the area? You must've been quiet either way, or they would have known you were there. Were you using a mouth-call or electronic? Great job again, that's a big predator.
