I think all the wolf lovers on here, should rent a bus or 5 and come over and actually see what a wolf does. You may change your minds.

I'd really like to know how many have actually seen a wolf in the wild. I've asked this before and get some plausible answers, but don't believe all answers.

I've never seen one. Reallistically speaking, not many people can say they have. I had them howling around me in the LPO refuge a few years back but never saw them.
That's all I got.
How many have you seen in the wild?

I’ve never seen a wolf lover either.  ;)
I read about one in a book by Jack London once.

Had them around me a couple times, in the dark at camp and packing meat out. Howling both times.  The sourounded my dad in Idaho when he was cow calling, scared the crap out of him. I saw one last spring bear hunting, my hunting partner missed one two years ago.

I don't usually jump in on wolf threads but I have an honest "biology" question concerning the original post:

Is it possible that 20 "packs" can have only 10 "breeding pairs"?

As I understand wolf biology, a "pack" has an alpha male and an alpha female, and only those two are allowed to breed.  Are there wolf packs that have non-breeding alphas?

If you are referring to the terms as used in WA wolf management, the difference is that a pack consists of more than one wolf, a breeding pair is not considered a breeding pair until they have at least two offspring that survive until the end of the year.

(I haven't reviewed those terms in a while so I may be a wolf or two off, but I'm close)

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
