Too awesome gopher. Getting wolves on cam common ? Once a month, every six months?
Basically, just pure luck. There are grey wolves (timber wolves) in the area and this is the fourth time in several years. Twice this year with one with snow on the ground. Over the last few years I have seen a couple but too far away to capture on a camera.
I have caught coyotes on trail camera, a few here. In my other area I captured lots as it is more open farm land with a plentiful supply of coyotes. They have disappeared in that area since last fall as several people were shooting and trapping them.
