I grew up and live in North Idaho.What most people dont know is the arctic grey wolf is not native to Idaho. They are a feral animal. We had timber wolves here that were native and they were rare to see. I have seen one in my life.
The grey wolves killed off any timber wolves left. Timber wolves are the size of a malmute.Way smaller than a grey wolf.
In smelterville Idaho the wolves have been down by I-90 free way chaseing elk and attacked and killed them in full view of people in the walmart parking lot.
They have decimated our elk herds until we can no longer kill cow elk and have to shoot bulls only. Plus the season has been shortened up.
If any of you want to see more pictures and detailed imformation on them such as how they like to take down cow elk rip into the rear of them and pull out the fetuses and eat them and leave the cow elk dying. There are plenty of pictures proving this and many pics of kills for fun not eaten.
It is Save the elk .com
They are not hard to kill like a cougar they are thin skinned and nothing like a bear or hog to kill. Locals here have been killing them on sight since before it was legal and year round. Idaho has opened up trapping and extending the seasons to hunt them.
We want them gone along with all the tree hugging city peukes who pushed for them to be transplanted here.
Under stand this was not done by people from Idaho but out of state wierdos who are anti hunting and antigun subhuman educated idiots.
The wolves are no
t the only problem with the cougar populations growing and a lack of interest in hunting them. The griz bears have also grown in populations where it is common to come across them in the woods pretty often.
So I suggest any one comming here to hunt the wolves make sure you are equiped with fire arms that you may have to use to defend your self with.
I hope many people will come and hunt them and help us rid the woods of these nonative killing machines.
No one here is a expert hunting them. But I can tell you this much. They are smarter than dogs and if you hunt them you are hunting hunters and they know it. Trying to track and stalk them like a elk or deer is almost as hard as going after cougars with out dogs.
Hunting them with dogs would get your dogs killed and eaten. The best way is to cover a lot of ground on a four wheeler where you come across them. They are not afraid of man and will run right buy you chaseing a deer or elk. But if you get on there sighn they will not let you get close for a shot.

The Grey Wolves were brought to the U.S. by the Government. The Fed ignored the native wolves and introduced these animals.

If any of you run across a book by Jim Corbett pick it up. He wrote several books about his experiences as a hunter of man-eating cats in India and I believe Africa. Talk about the hunter being hunted! Fascinating books though. I have "The Man Eaters of Kumoan", "Man Eaters" and "The Temple Tiger" in my collection.

VD did you ever read any of the Chapstick books? He wrote one in which big poisonous snakes hunted from the canapes above your head in the jungle. This would give you cold chills just reading it.

(I prefer not to be called VD. Hope you understand.)

So poisonous snakes in the finger food eh?

I presume you mean canopies. Never heard of Chapstick books, let alone read them. Are the non-fiction?

Jim Corbett is a real person who served as a sort of game warden in India a hundred years ago. His reputation was absolutely legendary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Corbett_%28hunter%29

Re snakes hunting from the canopy: I rethought letting my pet snake have the run of the apartment after he dropped onto my shoulders as i walked into the bathroom those many years ago. Happily, he was only joking...i guess.

No they don't, and it is you that is ignorant! Tell that to a farmer that has just had his livestock which are his/her livelihood slaughtered so that some pompous easterner can keep the west wild. Get a clue buddy and do some research, pretty soon we will be having to reintroduce the elk into this area due to the fact that these "endangered" wolves keep running down pregnant elk just so they can eat the baby inside and leave the cow elk suffering.
