Recommended Posts

Friday My buddy and i went out to checked up on my deer hunting spot, its just over 8 miles from UMD campus! when we got there we walked in from were we parked our truck, and my buddy goes theres a deer running i look up and said, " no thats a wolf!!!" so we start to run after this wolf to see if we can get a picture of him!!! well, we got atop of the hill and across the field we see two wolves about 200 yards away looking at us!!! we say wolves tracks all over atop of this hill and in the woods. has anyone else seen wolves close to duluth area?

Doesn't sound too unusual to me. There are plenty of wolves in that area.

i dont live in the region but know people that do and from what ive read in post over the past two years im not surprised too here of sightings any where! i live in rochester MN (in town) and a trapper last fall trapped a wolf on a farm less than a mile and half from my house and we have had sightings and even a road kill all around the rochester area..... where wolves are supposably not suppose to be for me down here its not a problem yet but if they are here its because there are to many in another area or they have eaten them selves out of an area and have moved here for food. the trapped wolf was released.

bob t is correct. lots of wolves in the area. i hunt 20 miles from island lake and the established pacs are there. they have been there since the early 60's when i first hunted there. i have seen them over the years, and heard them at nights with the howls and dont mind it a bit. it's part of the north that i love to be in as much as i can. good luck.

It isn't uncommon to see them in that area. I have seen wolves a number of times on 61 as close as the Sinclair pay-at-the-pump station.

We had one howling behind our house very early Saturday morning and we live in town.

Duluth City bowhunt 2 years ago I was hunting behind the gravel pit that is just north of the 61 split. Long story short, heard something coming up from behind me and was just about ready to draw when 2 wolves trotted out of the brush. That was something to see and it made the walk out a little eerie!

I also shared pictures on here of a pack of wolves by Grand Superior Lodge in the broad daylight feasting on a roadkill just off 61. They allowed me to park, get out of the truck and take 20+ pictures without even batting an eye.

+1 - well said. All anyone who truly has that kind of attitude has to do to figure out why wolves are still listed under the ESA is go look in the mirror.

Live a block from Glen Avon hockey rinks - winter of Jan 2010 had a deer pulled down by timber wolves in our backyard. They go where the deer go - not many deer in our neighborhood this winter, and no sign of the wolves either.

Harvard on the Hill - It is code for asking some one if they are attending Vermilion Community College laugh

I was going to suggest the individual speak with the guy that runs the LE program (Lukas?) grin

    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
