We feel very blessed to spend as much time as we do in the back country and feel this is a massive advantage when it comes to wolf hunting. As with most hunting, luck does play a part in a wolf hunt, but we are confident in our knowledge of several groups of wolves, their habits, daytime bedding areas, and travel routes when in a certain areas. We use howling, distress calls, glassing and watching wolf kills (when discovered) to get within range of these wolves. The majority of the time we will have to climb up to the wolves. In our areas they seem to like to “lay up” for the day on certain ridge top benches and knobs. We trek up to spots that are within earshot, offer a stealthy approach, and are somewhere the wolves will hopefully feel comfortable. We don’t like to just randomly call at random locations as this just seems to wastes precious time. Besides, it usually takes the better part of a day to get near these wolf “lay up” areas. These wolf hunts take place during the tough winter months when the elk and deer are concentrated in and around their wintering grounds.
We will be backpacking and camping throughout the trip. Cots with foam pads for comfort and you'll enjoy hearty, home style, satisfying meals served up by our camp cook.
