These wolf track were found while driving along my trap line in early December (before the wolf trapping season opened in Montana). One interesting thing about wolves is that often wolves will run in a line and step exactly in the tracks of the lead wolf. It can be difficult to determine the number of wolves in a group of tracks. The only good way to do it is to follow the tracks for a distance until they split up if only briefly. There are three wolves I this group but there is one obvious male wolf in the group with a pad larger than my hand.
Learning about wildlife through tracking and trapping have enriched my life and allowed me to learn about wild animals in a way that most people will never experience. What are the tracks you’re seeing telling you?
