Fw: JUST HOW LARGE ARE WOLVES????

Subject: Wolves

Just a few of the wolves killed this year with the Idaho wolf tag. It is just amazing how big they are.

If you are going into the Blues, Cascades, or up above Spokane hiking, game scouting, mushroom hunting, or something else you better start carrying a side arm. Can you even imagine being out by yourself and having 8 to 12 of these monsters surround you! Think about what kind of appetite a dozen of these must have.

Pass this around to your outdoorsmen and outdoors ladies, rancher, farmer, hunter, fishermen, hiker pals.

Think about these critters the next time you go tent camping ------- "sleep tight don't let the wolves bite"

Just a few of the wolves killed this year with the Idaho wolf tag. Wish I could show you a few hundred more pictures. It is just amazing how big they are. Deer, elk, moose and livestock killing machines. These massive wolves are not the native wolf that lived in our area 100 years ago according to DNA studies.
