Hey cv....I keep forgetting to mention....

The old trapper fella I give the Coyote hides to was by the other day. We got to talking about the Wolves that came through.
He found a dead Deer in the ditch near his place. So he dragged it to his place and left it in the field. Idea was to smoke some Coyotes.

Next morning 1/2 (back) was gone. Not just dragged off some, like a Coyote will do : gone !
Second morning same thing, front 1/2 gone.

He didn't know some Wolves had been in the area. He does now !

He also told me a fella not too far away shot a big male Wolf. It was after his female dog. For you-know-what  :grin:
He is going to let me know if there are pups and the breed of the female.

Interesting thing about when this happens. Pups have a mouth full of needle sharp teeth at 3-3.5 weeks. So will not be hard to tell if the male got to her !

  Since they are "facts" (and I bet, since they are from Reeves, they really are factual facts) they probably came from the real world, rather than what someone 3000 miles away read from someone 2000 miles off in another direction.  But, since i have less than half a brain, I'm probably too stupid too know.

  It is also unclear which numbers you, or PETA, doubt.

I don't know what it is you are asking for.
You think the season for Wolves happens to be too long ?
Their populations up here are expanding and exploding.
They actually have Wolf culls up here, from rotary and fixed wing air craft.
As a land owner I am allowed to kill any Wolf on my place all year long.
Due to this being mainly a farming area, and me knowing and having permission to hunt Coyotes and Wolves on many of the farms, I can shoot Coyotes and Wolves on their land, all year, as well.


Or are you asking about the food they require ?
One Wolf requires at least one Deer/week. This adds up to a minimum of 52/year/Wolf. You do the math.

In any areas holding the Woodland Caribou, they (Gov) is active in heavy culling, due to the sharp decline of the population. In some areas the Wolves have nearly wiped out the Woodland Caribou.

You have no idea what life up here is like, do you.

Reeves,
  thanks for the info on Wolves.  I never understood what the cattlemen around Yellowstone Park were so upset about wolves being reintroduced to that area.  Now that you have stated how much deer meat they eat, (and cattle), it makes more sense.

Old trapper fella was by yesterday. (same one who had the Wolves eat the Deer in two nights)
I asked if there has been any news, or any sign of them being still in the area : no. So far.

Fresh snow, so any new signs will stand out well. Whole County is now watching for sign  :evil:

This morning, due to the predicted warming, I drove through the field next to me. Coyotes (and Wolves) will travel the most easy route.
Of course, I made the track swing closer to my place  :angel:

  Good idea, I hear they love "non-field" pheasant.
