Much easier said than done in this country ask mr Rokslide ryan how many opps he has had to shoot a wolf in this country the only method reliable is trapping to clean out a pack

Ross, some amazing photos you have there!! As for the trapping, how hard would it be to run a trapline in that area?

Great photos. After my 1st trip to the handle last September, There’s no argument that the wolves are strong in there. Some places I saw more wolf than elk sign.

Vey very difficult to run trap line in this neck of the woods....would be happy to tell you one of the spots and here is what it would take to do it. First Idaho says you must check traps every 72 hours.....this is 1.5 hr drive from cda idaho...you then have to snowmobile or track in 1-1,5 hrs....you then strap on snowshoes and would climb some nasty steep country that on shoes would take 1-2 hrs uphill then you go out the biggest issue I hear is often trappers sets get buried in snow this country is very wet and can get some big dumps if considering pm me and can give some detailed specifics on my trail cam locations the elk and deer would appreciate it👍

Sounds like we need to organize a "pack" of trappers and rotate responsibilities until they are reduced! The Foundation for Wildlife Management reimburses expenses for taking a wolf... : ) Be one heck of a way to stay in shape over the winter.......
