Great shot you got of the black wolf on the cover of the Outdoor News. Not very often you have a moment like that!

Thanks, Chris! grin.gif

Threeball, it ether took 4 1/2 years or five seconds, depending on how you look at the time investment. I've been up here for 4 1/2 years trying to get pictures of wild wolves (have managed it one other time over a deer kill but not from close up). But I only spent a total of five seconds with my finger depressing the shutter for blackie here. grin.gif

Were you set up in a spot for hours or were you just lucky that day?

Oh, it was totally luck. I was parked just off the Fernberg. Pulled over to photograph an interesting segment of bark and the wolf came trotting along. Saw me the whole way. Posed at 20 yards, then as my first burst of images was writing to the CF card, she took a few steps forward, dropped her head and gave me that classic stare. There are a couple more images from that encounter, as well as a more full account of the happening, over on the FM photo sharing board under the title: Black wolf of the Fernberg.

But I'll tell you, even if I was set up in that spot for hours on end, it'd still be luck that a wolf decided not only to visit, but to make itself visible for the time it takes to get clear photos. I've seen lots of wolves since moving up here, but they never hang around. Unwilling models, I guess. grin.gif

Some people are so lucky, just being in the right place at the right time? Or are you out everyday making your own luck? Just saw the picture today. Nice

Took a look at the photos on the photo sharing forum. Awesome shots there Catfish. Gotta take a lot of time in the woods to get that close to a wolf.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...  
    • Tom Sawyer
      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL
