There was no wind, but my cattail fluff indicated NW air currents.
Then the closing howls began to swing south, into the air flow.
The next opening south was a third of a mile & I took off running.
On arriving at the clear-iced beaver dam, I saw the smoking hot tracks of the pack, along with still steaming urine distain-markings.
I had been flanked!.
Yup. That's wolves. If you can get a river or sharp canyon at your back or maybe a very large clearing, it'll stop that.

You did the right thing to move, IMO. Spending more than 1/2 hr. in one spot might work for ungulates, not wolves.

Thanks for the story. Great reading. I look forward to the next installment.

Did I not see the post where the op said where they were hunting and what he was hunting with? I'd like to know what kind of hardware is used to take down a 8foot long wolf :-)

Let me know if you enjoy hearing of this type of hunt and I will give a live feed of the next encounter.[/QUOTE]

Please do, I've never hunted wolves, and really enjoy reading about your hunt.



Good luck

Congrats on the wolf trophy. I have tried wolf hunting in Canada but no luck.

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!
