The only ones that I have seen up your way on the 200 road a few years back where black and could not get a shot at them.

Here’s an interesting note to do with the collaring of wolves in gcreek’s area and more specifically the ones that are eating the Itcha caribou to non-existence.
Last count said the Itcha caribou herd was down to around 600 +/- animals from the 2600 or so counted not that many years ago.
Last winter/spring wolves were collared that were thought to be predating on the declining Mountain Caribou population.
10 packs were identified averaging 8 wolves per pack.
This numbers came strait from the guy that put on the collars.
Now factor in that each pack has added appr 6 pups and that there’s a handful of wolves floating thru the Itcha mountains that are off the collaring program radar and all of a sudden there’s around 150 wolves chewing on 600 caribou.
The collars aren’t going to do much to stop the downward spiral of that specific Mountain Caribou herd but the 2 in gcreek’s picture are done killing for good.
Too bad the government procrastinators can’t figure that out.

don't confuse news from the FEDS/PROVINCIAL aimed at the general population with something as foolish as SCIENTIFIC FACTS !!!!!

Science and scientists are wonderful - except that it takes way too damned long for them to see what is right in front of their collective noses.

Seems that 'they' have to spend too much money on studies and analyzing data before reaching the conclusions that most hunters are aware of right now.

Interesting Mike,

We were told by the local that rode with the spotter plane that 21 collars were hung on wolves and that by track count there were 150 wolves in the areas surrounding Itcha Ulgatchuz park back in February. Kinda leaves one sceptical as to who to believe.

I do know for certain that 3 of the collared wolves are already dead.
