If you are looking for some game calls I have a friend that is making some howlers. I use his yote howlers and have had great luck with them. Send me a message if you would like some info. Good luck to you! I hope you get a bear and wolf!
I'm from Wisconsin and if I want to find wolves in my area, all I have to do is give a wolf howl at dawn or dusk. Just gotta be careful cuz the wolves are gonna be wondering who's trespassing on their turf! Never had a bad run in, but hearing a whole scad of wolves howl in a circle around me at last light was um' well, interesting.
-------------------- I shoot a little to the left no matter what I do. except of course for the ones that hit to the right or high. the ones that land in the dirt a foot in front of the target sometimes bug me. Posts: 9 | From: wisconsin | Registered: Feb 2009

This thread seems to stay alive, I hunted this time last year, ended up killing a great cinnamon bear. We did see some smoking fresh wolf tracks while we were there (as in when we walked in no tracks, walked out an hour later and there was tracks) but never saw a wolf. The outfitter wants me to start guiding for him now so I may get a chance at a wolf yet. Thanks everyone for their replies

As a guide in wolf country, I had the chance to call many Wolves. sadly never to my bow. I feel the sound is not as important as setup. here are some tips I've used that have worked for me - never walk on the path you believe the wolf may come into your call on - try to setup with your call down wind or cross wind from you. - Best place to call is a frozen river or stream, setting up on a high bank over looking river or stream - wolves can come in very slowly. give yourself a hour on each set. - In late winter, wolves like to sun in midday, look to call sunny hill sides away from where u might have a bait. - wolves like to return to old kills, look to call near old kill sites - most wolf kills are on lakes . rivers and ponds -setup in log jams on frozen rivers. wolves have no fear of open spaces, they will travel the edge of rivers. - when drifting rivers moose hunting in september, don't be surprised to have wolves answer your moose call. I find the best call to use is a pup in distress when this happens - wolves travel many miles in a day. In my years of trapping. found wolves to travel my line ever 3 weeks or so - howling has been my best locater of wolves, pup in distress has called the most wolves for me, depending the time of year. there no baby moose in winter months. any sound that fits the habitat of where you are will do
hope this help paul
-------------------- May you have interesting times paul
For those that haven't heard,Montana made some recent changes to their wolf hunting laws.First,electronic callers are now legal.A hunter can now buy up to 3 wolf tags.It used to be if the wolf license was purchased in season,you had to wait 5 days to use.That has been changed to 24 hrs.Also,the non-resident fee has dropped from $350 to $50.You have to look at specific units for dates,but generally,if bow season is in,you can shoot a wolf,with archery gear if you have a valid license.
