duluth wolves!!!

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
