The new wolf trapping manual and DVD from the Alaska Trappers association are now available. You can get them at the cutting edge in Fairbanks or contact mailto:info@alaskatrappers.org. They are $25 each or $40 for both. I spent most of last night reading the manual and it is extremely well done and thorough.

How long was it before the wolves noticed your buddy above them?

I think I gotta take a shot! If they kill the moose under your tree....then what? How long will you be up there until they finish it off? (LOL)

Bushman, those are some really neat pics! Of course, that moose was old, sick, lame, etc., etc. All of the wolf-huggers down here have given us to understand that they never kill anything healthy.

Bearbait, I went to the website and can't find anything about the wolf DVD. Maybe they don't have it posted yet? Is there a mailing address we can use?

Man, if I would have been in that stand with a bow.......The first 3 wouldn't have known what hit them. They might have just thought it was a errand claw or tooth.

Your buddy must not have realized that wolves can't climb??

Rick, you could see the "hitch" in his giddyup too?

Rick, they are not on the website yet, just click on the "contact us" down near the bottom of the ATA site and you can email Angel Knapp or call the cutting edge at 907.452.7477.

Rick: There are five classes of moose that wolves can kill:

Old
Young
Sick
Weak
Unlucky

Everything else is immune to wolf predation......

Amen, Dusty, and amen again!

I see in the papers where the alpha male of one of the packs in Yellowstone has mange. "Oh my, what will we do?" seems to be the general outcry among the bios. I also hear by way of the grapevine that our little resident pack here has it, too. Guess we'll just have to hide and watch.

Rick, You didn't hear any out cry from the bios that actually manage popualtions or habitat in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming. Its just those protect everything "Parkies". Heck, most of us thought it was great when they got Parvo in 2005 and lost most of the pups.

Uhmmm, as long as nobody's killin em and nobody's - I dunno, payin fer the motel or something - how are you managing populations, bcaber?

Looks like Idaho plans to manage them using only trained and experienced professional biologists. Naaa, just kidding - they're going to use "focus groups" and public input. I must have been sick the day they talked about focus groups in college. I HATE it when that happens!

Dusty - When I said manage pops and habitat I was talking more about what the wolves are munching. Obviously, the big dogs are still listed and we cannot do much there yet.

Gotcha - thanks.

Hope they let you play when the Feds pull out (what an apt term!)...

Wonder how cute people are going to feel when they start finding steaming piles of pet hair ;\) It's bound to happen, just hope it don't happen to one of their kids.
