Teanaway Wolf Pack
« on: July 05, 2011, 04:26:05 PM »
Stat biologists confirmed that a wolf pack has taken up residence in the Teanaway...

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2015516994_wolves06m.html

I wonder if this means more, smaller packs or if the numbers are going up that fast?

I wonder how many people on here scoffed at me when I said they were there over a year ago(hell, might ahve been two years ago now).  WITH collars on no less. Wow, glad to see they came out of the closet on this one.  NEXT........

I had no doubt you were right, how long before they confirm all the packs that are here in other parts of the state? Blues for certain.

I am not one of the non-believers.  I believe there have been wolves (at least passing through) the Nile and all the way down into Goldendale based on tracks and scat that I have seen the past few years.

I must admit that I wouldn't have thought there could be wolves in the Teanaway.

I just wouldn't have thought that a pack could hide very effectively that close to civilization.   I would have thought that a deer hunter would have popped one over there and word would have gotten out.

I've never called BS on anyone that said wolves were in any given place, but I've always had my doubts.     Now I guess I know.

Bad day for the Teanaway......

I saw a wolf in the Blues in 2009 when hunting for my bull.  It was a young wolf after dark crossing the road in front of us 1/2 mile from camp and it didn't blink an eye at us.  No it was not a yote, wrong color and bigger.  I figure they are all planted and no one asked our opinion ( hunters) except maybe the ones in the NE corner.

My hunting partner saw two on the Devils Table during an elk hunt in the early 2000's.   He called WDFW and their response was kind of shocking...  "they aren't ours".   

Now there are reinforcements backed by agenda on the front porch of the state's largest elk herds. Isn't it kind of weird how Conservation NW and WDFW seem to have trail cams and other methods of "proof" set up every place where these "new" wolf packs are being sighted?

It's big news if you care about elk hunting.

I talk with the bios the other day and they have one collared in the teanaway.  He also said it was a good thing.  I gave him a piece of my mind.   :mgun:

 My one hope is that these are native wolves and not the  Mackenzie  transplants . Our family has seen wolves multiple times hunting elk on the Colockum the last 25 years. One of which was me in 1989 in the swift creek area of the Naneum GMU. Scared the Hell out of me when it came out from under a tree as I was on A blood trail! Our natives are one thing, the Mackenzie subspecies is totally another! Question, How did the collar get on it?

I had planned on hunting the Alpine Wilderness area for elk for elk and deer this September.  Can anyone tell me how far away these Wolves are from Tuquala Lake and Fish Lake area?   This is horrible that there are Wolves there.  How the heck did the wolves jump that far.  From the Spokane area half way across the state to the Teannaway??

Probablly 10-20 miles from ur spot going south. Maybe West from Blwette pass. What I see in this picture and it can't be stare at alpine wilderness.  I believe trailcamera stare over to manastash because pic on right side more white possible west and pic on left look like east or stared over to above Easton from somewhere twentynine pine way top of hill somewhere.. Possible travel down to low tennaway drainage when pups getting bigger. Mother will show them where Elk herds down there.   :bash:

Thanks Kain. I left my thoughts.
When did they start the WFW FB page? I looked last year, but couldn't find.

That photo came from the Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Program
http://www.i90wildlifebridges.org/monitoring.htm
 
From the WDFW release:
 
Images of wolf-like animals were captured on cameras placed in the area by Conservation Northwest, a private, non-profit organization. The group's Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Program also provided the first images of the Lookout Pack pups three years ago.
 
Obviously if she was collared, they have known about this pack for a long time. They trapped her and collared her. Have to wonder how many more are they sitting on "waiting" for DNA, trapping and collaring, before they call them "a pack"

Hey thanks for the info Bone and mulehunter I appreciate it.  That makes me feel better about where I plan on going  I live in Alabama so I can't exactly go check it out for myself.

From the back of a truck.   :yike:   :yike:  Wow how scary is that.  So I have a question.  If a "non-profit" organization put them there then they are technically not an animal owned by the state right???  So someone could shoot it without any legal repercussions right???  Kind of like if I released my dogs into the wild???  Just saying  :chuckle:

The "nonprofit" put out the camera, and supposedly helps in tracking.
According to their website
