What's everybody's strategy for hunting wolves? I have wanted to get into predator hunting for nearly a decade now and now seems like a perfect chance. I still haven't quite decided if I am going to apply, but if I do it will be for the late season. My biggest questions are what size rifle is required to take down a wolf without destroying its hide? Would you use this gun on a smaller animal (ie fox) if that came into your setup or would you carry 2 guns or just pass on smaller animals? If you do get a wolf, what are your plans for it (rug, mount, sell, etc)? Do you think calling will be effective even though you can't hunt them at night? What type of calls do you think will be most effective? I realize the chance of shooting a wolf is still pretty slim and this is new to everybody, but just curious what everybody's thoughts are.
