Wolves

6 posts in this topic

Sadly, not taken in the wild, there very few wolves here and I haven't made it to Yellowstone yet. The first three are gray wolves from NW Trek, a game farm/zoo south of Seattle, WA. The second two are red wolves taken at the Minnesota Zoo.

These three were all taken with the Sigma 150-500 @ 500mm wide open.

Is that the new Sigma 150-500OS? If it is how long have you had it and how well do you like it? It looks like it takes fairly sharp images at 500mm. I like the third one the best. Thanks for sharing.

Nice stuff John! YF beat me to it. I am also interested in your review of the 150-500mm.

Thanks guys, #3 and #5 are my favorites too.

I'll start a separate thread with my thoughts on the 150-500.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
