Why Do Witches Burn?

Well, guess I need to visit the TR section more often, this is SUPER COOL!

I've had the idea of heading into the Teanaway on a solo trip in summer for a few days with the hope of being able to "shoot" some wolves (yeah, with my long lens) and this post is really wetting my appetite for that.

Thanks for all the great pics and video BPG, and terribly sorry about the vandalism and conflict you're having.

Honestly, I don't see what the issue is.  Everyone knows there are wolves in the Teanaway.  Yes, there are people who subscribe to the "shoot, shovel, shut up" mentality but your pics and images don't really help them unless you're giving specific locations.  I haven't read through every single post to see if you're doing that, but I don't know why you would.

I just found this thread too, and WOW. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing these images. I've known the wolves are "out there" now but to actually see them makes it real. They are GORGEOUS animals. I can see why you get so much joy and satisfaction from pursuing this. And I hope the person that's hassling you will do the right thing and back off. Thanks again BPG!

Those pictures are simply amazing!! You captured some great animals there. I didn't realize there was that many there, no wonder why the area is pretty much void of any ungulate population.

The images & videos I posted, might make it appear that way, but with the exception of the solo black wolf, those image & video captures are of the same wolves. 5 to 6 wolves in that pack plus the wandering black wolf, who, up until a couple of weeks ago, does not appear to have been accepted into the pack.

I was out yesterday


and saw a small herd of about 15 cow elk not far from here. See deer all the time.

Anyway, I've actually grown kinda bored with these wolves. Will probably go seek out a neighboring pack or look for evidence of a new pack. I've already found some sign.  It's been alot of fun.

Also, still need to go find a wolverine.

If that were true, the wolves wouldn't be there. wink.gif

I happen to know that area very well and the ungulates population is 10% of what is was 10 years ago. As you know then wolves don't need ungulates to survive.

Set the camera up on the remains of a wild turkey. Snowed quite a bit and the carcass became buried . Cat has a good sense of smell

Great videos. I'm surprised a the bobcat's movements seem so cautious -- always looking around. I'd expect a predator to be more bold, not act like a deer.

I suspect in this area, whether or not the bobcat is predator or prey depends on what else is in the neighborhood.

Ditto the great videos!
