10 years, 10 long years and i finally got a shot at a wolf this morning. 65 yards freehand with a 30-30 and 170 grain bullet and here is the result.

Awesome, I missed one exactly like that one in Alaska. He was broadside at 100 yards.

Man at the size of that thing!!  What a beautiful animal.  I'd sure get the hide tanned, anyway.  Looks like you have a trifle of snow on the ground.  Wish we had some, it's in the low 50's here in Arkansas.

I just don't think I could pull the trigger. I started to shoot  a huge coyote a few years ago. I was seated on the side of a hardwood ridge about 15 feet up the hill and he trotted out into the hollow about 25yards away. It was late season and he was in full pelt... a beautiful animal. I crosshair-ed him and almost dropped him, but he was too good of a mental image to store with his breath hovering around him... it was breathtaking.

I feel the same way about bobcats... such a priveledge to see one of those in the wild, I don't think I could ever fire on one...

Big fat doe or average size buck beware, I think you're cute too... but you're tasty.

Any rate, beautiful animal. I would definately get the pelt tanned.

Davered1,

Way to go!!!!!!beautiful animal!I personally WOULDN'T have hesitated harvesting that wolf!or a coyote, fox or bobcat for that matter. It sure will look good on your wall! That skull will look awesome boiled and cleaned, if you saved it. Maybe there will be a few more deer around since you harvested that predator.
