    Imagine a couple/three of those circling closer and closer. Can't think of too many folks that would be able to shrug off the imminent attack.

    That wolf has got to be ~150 lbs and nearly 6ft from snout to bum. Paws as large as a small adult hand.

    Where's that thread about a recent purchase of a second Ruger Alaskan in .454 ...

    Wow, thanks for that link. Something needs to be done about those wolves. More of this:

    OK, I'm back at home and on my own computer, lets see if I can get these pictures to come out.........

    OK, looks like I figured it out without the help of a 12 yr old kid. These pictures were taken in Wyoming on Christmas Day '08. This is why ranchers don't like wolves.......

    Interesting that the parts the wolves most enjoy are those we consider 'specialty' pieces*, while the muscles we call steak are apparently not a wolf's first choice for dining.

    I think of falconry for squirrels and wonder whether a wolf might be trained to hunt deer ... or not.

    You are welcome, the other side of the Wolf story is vary rarely told. I would also venture a guess that most environmental extremists probably never venture into the wild, or care about the ranchers and the rest of the animals these Wolfs kill. Take care..Jeff

    *so angry she is literally seeing red*

    WHY WOULD YOU SHOOT A WOLF FOR SPORT?

    Wolves are naturally shy and tend to avoid human contact! 99.9% of the time, they only bite when you're cornered them or challenged them, or threatened puppies of the pack.

    Sorry. I advocate hunting and all, but NOT WOLVES. I think these photos are barbaric.

    Okay, wait, just read other posts. Were they killed because they were threatening/killing livestock? Ok, that I can see. I thought this was like, just a sport trophy. In which case, I think THAT is barbaric.

    Wolves are naturally shy and tend to avoid human contact! See this link Idaho Citizen pretty close to humans.99.9% of the time, they only bite when you're cornered them or challenged them, or threatened puppies of the pack. I believe they are like any other apex predator, if they are hungry and/or you are in their territory, they will attack you

    I try to respect every ones opinion. Take a look at the link in my first post just to gain another perspective. Keeping them protected when their numbers are good enough to have recently removed them from protected status is foolish. The law makers were then lobbied by outraged environmentalist to keep them protected when the Wolfs numbers showed otherwise. Also introducing non native species, in my opinion shows a lack of understanding. Regulate their hunting like any other predator, just like Coyotes, Bobcat, Mountain Lion, Fox etc.. Do not buy into the cute images shown on National Geographic Channel and others. Take care...Jeff

    Looks to me like the wolf is dead and someone is using him as a prop.

    Tendencies vary by circumstance and time, of course.

    Humans are two things to animals such as wolves, basically: a predator, to be avoided; a hoarder of food, to be raided. That's understood by animals from rats to bears, and most everything in between. And I doubt any one of them gives a thought to the "honor" of one reason over the other. It's just the way things are. When you're hungry, you find it. When threatened, you defend against it. It's how life works. For all animals.

    The public call it sport but its actually a way of controlling the population of the species. When their numbers are more than what is considered proper they are thinned out. Some favor Government Trappers for this but I prefer letting hunters do it.

    Alowing only Government Hunters or trappers to do it makes me think of the "Kings Deer".

    I apologize, I get overly emotional with dogs and wolves. Clearly if there's a benefit (like they're killing livestock and need to be thinned out) I guess a clean kill shot is better than a trap where they suffer. Like I said. I support hunting. Somehow though, photos of dead dogs or wolves just get a very visceral reaction from me.

    Sorry I blew up like that, y'all.
