Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut.

Gray Wolf Depredation Updates

Two hounds killed by wolves

On July 21, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves depredated two hounds that were participating in the bear/hound training season.  The depredation occurred on county lands in the Town of Knight.  Both dogs were engaged in the same pursuit but are owned by different owners.  The dogs were less than 150 feet apart from each other and were killed in a wolf rendezvous site.

Since the depredation is in area that falls between 3 or 4 territories, it is uncertain which pack caused the depredation. Therefore, the caution area is a four-mile buffer around the depredation site. The location of the depredation appears to be the north end of the Chippewa River pack, but pack areas do shift over time, and it could be an adjacent pack. Also this area of the state has few paved roads and highways that could be used for defining pack boundaries.

You can find the map and other information on the dog depredation web page or by going to the DNR website (dnr.wi.gov) and typing keyword "wolf".
