They are smart, hard to hunt buggers that's for sure. In the area of Idaho we have hunted, there are A LOT of people around. It's not overly difficult to get away from people, and we usually hunt all day without running into another hunter. The last 2 years were the first time that we ran into wolf sign. A guy in a neighboring camp killed one, and this year while hunting a big burn in the snow, we kept criss crossing fresh tracks. On the way out, they were in our tracks. We still hunted a 1 mile long burn all day, in wolf and elk tracks, and never laid eyes on a wolf. My guess is they were onto us from the get go and steered clear. Boot hunters will never be able to control the wolf population, so I'm glad to hear that Idaho has proposed the increase in tags from 5-15 for trappers. That will allow the guys that have it figured out to put a more significant dent in them.
I hunt therefore I am. I fish therefore I lie.

Good luck Whitey. When you get back and the snow clears up, there could be 2,000 wolves including new pups.
