Wolves in Kapowsin Tree farm
« on: June 23, 2017, 03:50:39 PM »
Has anybody encountered any? I went for a run today off the bridge gate side. Road 14 something or other and encountered two wolves. At first I thought it was someone ahead of me with two dogs, but as they got closer I realized they were wolves. One of which was wearing a radio collar. They were both black and about the size as a black lab. They came up from the dark timber, ran down the road until they saw me, then darted back into the woods. I thought I was seeing things. I was about 4 miles in, in an area where it's one way in. One way out. Curious to hear back from you all.

Make sure to report it. If you don't the WDFW will continue to deny their is enough wolves in the western unit to allow the count down to start. Remember once we have a breading pack in the west for four years, hunting can begin in the east.

Me and my Dad have also seen one each up on the Main gate side. My Dad was sitting over the fox pro 3 years ago or so when one came in on him and got a couple minutes to look at him,,,,,,, and mine was around 12 yrs ago up top on the 32 road.   
And, No they weren't coyotes,My Dad being stationed up in Alaska and us living in Alberta for 8years have a little better than average idea of what they should look like :chuckle:(for you nay sayers)
That being said,,, i have also seen some larger than average dogs running around in the bridge gate around the same time that those angus beef where also running loose

I second this statement.

That makes me think I saw one up there last year then.  I was still hunting through the reprod and thought it was a coyote, but as it got closer I realized it was a huge coyote.  Maybe I saw a wolf....it was grey/brown like a coyote.  I'll never know!

 Not a far stretch distance wise, but there have been posts on Graham/Kapowsin and Eatonville Facebook pages over the last three to four months describing similar animals being seen between 288th and 352nd. All between Webster Rd and Oroville/OK Hwy. A few arguments over whether they are possibly wolves or not.
There is no greater respect to have for wildlife than to harvest an animal fairly and use it's flesh to feed your family.  ~me
