One less wolf
« on: February 05, 2012, 07:14:03 AM »
Had a reasonably productive day on the line yesterday. Was a scorching +3.  8) Great day for a weenie roast and a bit of a relax.

Came home with another wolf. Not a lot of sign in the last two weeks. Hopefully, the next time they make the circuit, we'll have more fur on the ground.

This one was a large male with a HUGE coconut on him.

Right on Doug good catch.. Most of the trappers I been talking to this winter up in the north east of the province are having a tough time getting Wolf this winter do to the lack of snow so I would think any kill on one is a bonus.

  What’s a wolf pelt worth to you I hear there around the 300 mark any truth to that?

We can only sell raw fur to fur buyers. We get the hides professionally tanned, so they are legal to sell to anyone.

The tanning is typically over $300. We sell them for $550 to $650 tanned (typically). Sometimes we market them in the US too.

After convincing all my friends to watch The Grey, they want to go wolf hunting.

Nevermind that it is nothing like that whatsoever!

Is it legal to bait wolves in Alberta? I haven't really looked into a concentrated hunt. I just keep my .223 ready when out hiking in case I stumble across one or a few coyotes.

Yup- baiting wolves is legal in Alberta- with restrictions.

This is from the regs-
Baiting for Wolves and Coyotes - On public land, hunters cannot use bait for hunting wolves or coyotes except a) from Dec. 1 to Mar. 31, or b) during an open season for the hunting of black bear where the setting out, use and possession of bait for the purpose of hunting black bear is permitted. (This highlighted wording is legally correct but differs from the wording used in distributed copies of the 2011 Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations.)

Each wolf or coyote bait site must have a readily observable sign showing the owner’s name, WIN, Big Game Outfitter-guide Permit Number, or Big Game Guide’s Designation Number.

These baiting restrictions do not apply to WMUs 102-166, to persons hunting under authority of a trapping licence, or on any private land.
