Another pregnant wolf

Postby wawhitey » 08 16, 2017 •  [Post 1]

Second time ive got a pregnant wolf on cam. Different areas. You can see the grey one here is looking ready to burst. That combined with getting wolves on that cam 3 times in a month leads me to believe a den must be very close by.

I was looking closer at the pic,..is the right rear leg missing?
Ive trapped three huge red fox (wild) that were over 17 lbs. One in Kittson County Mn, One in the Pine Ridge Nebraska breaks , and a three legged one that a farmer saw get caught in the hay mower.

So my hike in to check the cam was 5+ miles, and i hiked a different route out. All told, 5+ hours of coveribg ground on that mountain today. And man, the entire mtn is COVERED in wolf tracks! I spend a lot of time in wolf territory, ive run into them, had them howling around me, gotten them on cam doing wolf things, found countless tracks, piles of scat, kills etc. But ive never seen anything like this. It was crazy. So much wolf sign... was almost creepy. Heres a couple crappy pics of one, with a big store bought hard boiled egg sitting in heel pad for size comparison, and a crappy pic of my hand on a track.
