I'm thinking the actual size foot print will differ from one computer to the next ?
Also, the Wolves that were moved to the States, if I recall correctly, came from eastern or mid way in the western Provinces. These Wolves are not as large as the northern ones.
Below is a picture of my hand on a sheet of white typing paper that is 8 1/2" x 11".
I have placed my hand in tracks that were much bigger than my hand.

as stated, those wolves aren't much bigger then an average sized Lab., both my dogs are over 80lbs. When I was a kid, my dad got me a WolfxMalmute from Dawson City, in the FAR north. I had that fella to a vet when he was about 3-31/2, he weighed 156lbs., and  pure wolves get bigger then that!

You would be 100% correct......due to crossing with a dog making the K-9 (Wolf) smaller.

Wow that's huge !! bet the hunter was one happy hombre ...

Your Bighorn sheep pics are really nice.



This is a 130 pd Grey Wolf in yellowstone. The image is a clickable link to USWFS. Records tell us they do get a heavier. I would think the weight of 80 to a 100 pounds and tracks (3.5 inches by 4.5 inches) is in general or an average size.

Found this on an AB hunting site this morning. I'll post the picture and what he said.

Not if you are carrying a rifle.  :grin:

Back in the early 90s (not the 1890s Wilder !  t15 ) I was working in the bush near Creston BC. Had three Cougars "hunting" us (two others, in their own campers).
We couldn't go out at night without looking out every window and a good look with flash lights. Lasted three nights. Two of us saw the female jump right across the old logging road....without touching the road right of way !
That was the only time I found myself concerned with these big cats.
They sure make some weird noises !

  Gee, why did you say that?

  I sure agree about the noises.  Hadn't heard anything like it, still haven't 'til a few days ago.
