I caught this female a few days ago. She was between 103 and 105 pounds on the scale. Her nose was still a little scrunched on the ground when she was weighed.

Great looking animal! Love the colors. Got the face of my neighbors German Shepard, the front legs of Secretariat, grey fox shoulders, my mom's braided rug for a saddle, the rump of 'ol yeller, and the tail of a short tail weasel. Photoshopped? laugh

Nice catch, Frank.

Awesome picture! What trap? and what kind of set? Bait--- no bait? Lure? urine? How was it staked? Tell us the whole story.

The trap was a jake that was 18 inch double staked in rocky soil. It was a real pain getting the stakes in but they were very easy to pull out after their work out.

The lure was Barnes wolf lure with a homemade one I concocted. I had a urine post set, with the urine Hal sells, a few feet away. This trap was sprung with a few hairs. The trap was moved a few inches. I don't see how the caught wolf could have reached it once caught and she was alone. So .. I don't know what happened.

There is a story but I think I might save it for FFG!

That is a big animal. When I first looked at the picture, I noticed it's head, and then the hind-quarters. You know, some of our deer will weigh less than 100#.

Another thing I noticed, are the toenails, they appear to be nearly an inch long. Is that typical?

An old guy here, used to have fox hounds, he always checked any dogs feet, that he intended to make into a fox hound. He refered to some dogs as being "coon footed". Meaning that the dog carried most of it's weight on the heal of it's feet.

He wanted his dogs to stand up on their toes, he always said that they had more stamina, and could run faster, last longer on a fox chase.

Not sure? In your opinion, was this wolf really old? With bear, sometimes you'll notice one with really worn teeth. Just curious.

This was not an old wolf. It was an adult that I think was lobo. Usually that means that it was kicked out of the pack by the dominant female.

The feet are typical. They have huge feet.

Here is another I recently caught. It is a young female of 64 pounds.Wolves grow into their feet in a similar fashion as a big dog that grows into its feet.

Nice! I wish, sort of, that we had wolves. I would love to match wits with one.
