yotefever,

Great post. I applaud your continued efforts. You hit the nail on the head regarding being undereducated regarding WI wolf hunting. Watching a few videos, reading articles, and talking to successful hunters who stumbled upon a wolf out west, in Canada, or Alaska does not prepare you for the WI sprint. The next time I draw a tag in WI it will consume me from the time I receive the DNR congratulation letter until I present the carcass and pelt. I will continue to follow the results of future seasons, improve my knowledge and gain permission ahead of time for future trapping and hunting locations. It is obvious by following the statistical trends, every lottery winner will need to do their homework and have a wolf or two patterned prior to the season opener. I expected a challenge killing a WI wolf, but I never expected it to be a race.

Very well stated quote redarrow. I echo that.

Just curious, how many traps would you guys guess the average wolf trapper has been using this year? I bought a 12 pack of MB 650's, but haven't quite got all of them out this season. Yes, I realize the 2 in my garage won't catch anything, but I made what I think are some quality sets w/ the 10 I have out right now.
Someone stated that the stock MB 650 pan tension isn't what they wanted for wolf or 'yotes. I personally haven't found that, although I'm admittedly learning. I wonder what modifications to the 650 some have made.
I did have what appeared to be a wolf pull out of a 650 last month in zone 5, but other than that, I think they're a great trap. Zone 6 is a challenge though!

Check this out! See part 2 of this article. FINALLY the US House approved Wolf delisting. Now we need the US Senate to act.

This should make it harder for groups like the Wolf Patrol to harass trappers. Those folks don't think they are harassing, but they don't realize the importance of scent control, etc.
