Go, Ely Timberwolves! New pix!

Recommended Posts

Sumthin' is happening to the wolves over the last couple of weeks! I don't have a story like Steve did, but I did bump into these guys today. Saw the black fella first, but the second one dashed onto the road. They were in sight for a total of about 15 or 20 seconds, so just got two short bursts in. About 90 yards away, I was happy to get 'em!

Dude! Guess I should have gone with you over your extended lunch hour instead of heading from the Tomahawk over to Sax-Zim! What a great encounter.

Uh, you could always e-mail me and tell me where you found them. gringringrin

You guys are making me SO envious. Great captures, Ken. The first is definitely my fave.

I'm darned tempted to take a week and head your way.

Congrats Ken, I'm happy to see that you had your new camera in your lap and ready to go. I like the pose in the last one for sure. I keep having to go the to the zoo to find wolves.

I did. I never win.

If you count up the many thousands of hours I've spent in the woods looking for wolf photographs and weigh them against the photographs I've got, the odds of getting wild wolf photographs are still far better than the 80,000,000 to 1 odds of winning the Powerball.

Still, I keep trying on both fronts. You can't win if you sit in front of your computer and don't play. gringrin

True, but sitting in front of my PC isn't costing me anything. wink

I agree, Steve. I buy one Powerball a week and haven't won a buck in over a year. With wolves I've won the jackpot twice in the last two weeks!

Mike, I wasn't thinking of you in particular. But, nor is sitting in front of a computer winning us anything. smilesmile

Ken, you buy Powerball when you got back in town? This run of wolves has simply been amazing. gringrin

Sure has, Steve! You made the call on the weather forecast - I'm anxious to get back out but don't like what it looks like for rain.

TOO MUCH INFORMATION!!!!!!! shockedshockedshocked

For the record, I think I've had three of four different avatars over the last sixth months. One hopes that you change your undies a little more often than that. gringrin

Sorry Ken, your thread, not ours.

Go wolves! gringrin

I have to admit when I saw the title to this thread I thought you'd be posting sports images from the local high school team.

What a pleasant surprise that these wolves weren't wearing red uniforms! gringrin

It's just that your last avatar, the hawk, had only been up a day or two.

Back to you, Ken. Actually, I assumed the same as Steve, and almost didn't check out the thread. It would have surely been my loss, if I hadn't. After these close encounters, do you dream about wolves at night? sleep I can guarantee you, I would.

You've been using up all the good titles, I had to come up with something different!

I have to admit when it came up on the sidebar I thought that Finnbay must have took the 50D to the basketball game to get some shots with bad lighting just to test the high ISO grin

I had the same thoughts as jimalm. I was looking forward to some indoor sports shots with the 50D. The real wolves is a nice surprise! What a great experience it must be to get so close to some beautiful animals.

Thanks all. It's always a rush to see a wolf, or moose, or deer, or eagle, or pine martin, or just about anything! Some are just more rare than others.

Steve's been out and about so much lately (successfully) he's going to have to come up with some new material for titles!

Probably I'm heading out to the North Shore today, too. Might have to do some Lake Superior scenics under this curtain of rain. Tough photography conditions, but rewarding for all that.

We'll see.

Ken, any wolf we see today's gonna be a bedraggled mess of wet fur. gringrin

    • 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........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
