Sorry Casey, my phone access success for this site is one out of 40 tries!
N. Canada has a surplus of wolves.
Your deer rifle is perfect for hunting them. Many will advocate the .223 & triple two fifty, but I have experienced extentive tracking over 2 days after a big wolf took a 55 gr to the shoulder. After being knocked off his feet he recovered & took off on three legs.
I like the 140gr 6.5mm-the same load that I use for elk moose bear etc.
Hope this answers your question.
Hey, looks like a successful post!!
In that case I'll add this:
Tried to set up a "drive" for remainder of pack.
My friend Randy, an experienced Metis hunter, posted on a wide logging road.
I picked up the packs' trail & continued SW, which was cross-wind.
What finally transpired was that, yes, one big wolf came out 75yds from Randy & his friend. They missed!! (30-06 & 300 mag!)
Apparently there's something mesmerizing when a closeup wolf stares at you!
