    Alaskan Wolf


    A nice solo wolf in Atigun Pass. I'm sure he was hunting Dall Sheep. Perfectly prime but I couldn't take him at the time.

    Nice pics but I have a hard time looking at wolves without wishing they were dead! lol
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    I do use a zoom lens. Generally about 200mm, but I recently bought a 100-400mm.

    in this case the Haul road goes over Atigun Pass and the wolf happened to be going through at the same time I was. There is almost always sheep that hang around that area and I suspect he was targeting them. I know that certain wolves and certain packs pretty much single out a preferred species, like sheep, and only take the other critters on an incidental basis. I was within 50 yards at times.

    I don't think that the only good wolf is a pelt, BUT, I would have liked to take this one home for the wall!
