I was asking hoping it was the wedge GMU105 hoping for a little tribal retaliation. I am very aware of the wolf situation there. Suffered some loss myself. Will be hunting 111 on my private ground this weekend. Have a good buddy from the REZ has killed 2 already sort of grown a taste for shooting them.

I know, SERIOUSLY.    There was getting to be decent elk numbers, some serious trophy muledeer if you knew where to look.   Not even counting the mountain whitetails and moose.     They call it progress

you wouldn't believe how desolate and animal free some of those areas have become, just utterly wiped out

You are right, we didn't see a single Mule Deer this weekend, we usually do,  we did see some WT but they were a way aways from where we saw the wolves, these wolves were literally right down to the river close to homes

We were camped out at big meadow lake just west of Ione for a moose hunt last week. Wolf track everywhere in the snow. Sitting around the fire Monday night and they were howling off an on for a half hour. >:(

They are trapping and shooting a few. They are being pretty quiet about it though.

Saw 2 wolves in GMU 117 on opening day for late season one had a collar 330 yards I was tempted. I also got stopped by fish and game 15 minutes after I saw them. in 20 years of hunting that area I have never seen game officer in that area. 2 days later I spot the same wolves 3 miles away in another spot of mine and again i see another game officer cruising the area in his truck. coincidence maybe or could they be tracking the signal from the collar.
