I'll be in this country after Christmas looking for wolves. Been doing a ton of research on the topo maps and the ground and have a decent game plan. Guys I talked to who hunted hard this year didn't see a single bull all season.

"One wolf will kill 20 elk per year," not counting surplus killings,

How many deer will one wolf kill per year? 40 plus?

According to WDFW wolves started "migrating" to WA in 2002. Remember the lie of "first wolf pack in 70 years?

I'll be spending 4-5 nights starting Sunday in the back of my truck up the Lochsa. Hope the temps don't get too cold, but the snow on the ground and forecasted snow is promising for some good hunting.

The good news about WA Wolves is when we finally get a chance to hunt and trap we will have a ton of knowledge learned from hunting them in Idaho first. It will give us a better start then what they had in Idaho the first year

Boot hunting may be tougher than your call in lion.  Idaho has put some spook in them for sure.  Get after them and good luck!!!

This is where hunters need to take care of the problem.

Hunters would be a small and largely ineffective part of the solution. Rigorous trapping needs to be a key component of wolf management.

My buddies uncle trapped 20 wolves this year in Idaho.  I'm signed up for a general trapping class in March.  Then I'll get wolf certified.  Hounds on the way for Idaho cats and bear hunts!    :)

Wishful thinking I guess. You guys are probably right. Even when the day comes, it will be lawsuits and such just like Wisconsin and Idaho and it gets pushed out over and over

Was in 12 last Sunday. Saw +/- 70 elk in the stretch of highway before daylight and 17 miles of ground I covered.

Saw lots more elk sign in the drainage I was set up and calling wolves in. Wolves were in that drainage less than a day before I went up there. Lots of wolf *censored* and tracks on the trails and ridges I walked. Less than 6" of snow on top of the ridges I was on. Hoping to get down there again in a few weeks once it snows so I can cover more ground on skis.
