Default AK Wolf

DSCF2684 (640x480).jpgDSCF2680 (640x480).jpgCalled in a big male wolf with my wildfire. I use a separate wiggly rabbit as decoy. When I hit him he fell right on top of it then bit it in to pieces as he died there under my FoxPro in the tree. 25 yrds, 1min. 30 seconds after turning call on, caught on video. ( I guess I'll have to buy the FoxPro jack now!!!) used my mini 14- 70 grain Hornady hollow points. 2nd wolf w/ my FoxPro. They don't even hesitate. turn it on and they come running. you don't even have time to think, just shoot!!!

Good going! Lucky for you he ate the decoy and not the caller. That's an awesome looking predator.

Paul, do you hunt near Soldotna for them or do you have to travel up the peninsula?

Very nice...GOOD hunting.....before set up, how did you locate them. Did you travel roads or trails and spotted fresh tracks or did you see fresh tracks hunting or did you hear them and move in closer. Job well done.........Shoot some more and tell us about your hunt

GOOD HUNTING

Yes near Soldotna. I saw were they had crossed the road the day before and did some tracking and calling w/ no response. the next day I stopped near the area I called the day before to gear up for checking my trap line when I heard them howling so I camoed up and headed in started to set up when I heard them again, so I moved 200 yrds closer while moving I saw fresh tracks going to the left while the rest where in front of me. I turned on my camera then the call on snowshoe. according to the timer on the film he came in 1 min. 30 sec. after I turned it on. I had 3 sec to pull up and shoot and he dropped like a rock right under my FoxPro. I sat still and tried calling more, but all I got was howled at. when I hit the wolf howl on my FoxPro they shut right up. (they did not like that) had to hike back out to get the sled cause I couldn't drag him over a 1/4 mile. He was 110 lbs. very nice and thick fur.

JOB WELL DONE....thanks for sharing your info, I find it interesting when you tried the FP wolf howl....that they shut down..... When FP staff hunted wolves on FUR TAKERS they spotted a pack on top of mountain.....tried a wolf chorus(group howl) and the pack went to the other side of mountain......They then set up on an old kill and a couple of wolves showed up.

I often wonder if sounds that dogs can't resist (just me) and come a running like a DOGFIGHT, CATFIGHT, YIPPY SMALL DOG again just me...untried.
Best of luck to you on your future hunts.......tell us all about it

GOOD HUNTING

Great story, great picture. Kudos to you on taking that big rascal. Got to be a rush to see one coming in to the call.

Wow, Paul, makes me want to move to Alaska! But I am a deep south guy and probably could not survive there! Steve
