The wolves of Castle Danger

On my way to work this morning I was treated to this:

One of them had a really bad limp, looked like the Alpha judging by size and the way the other 3 would drag the carcass to him. Pretty neat way to start the day.

That is a good way to start the day. I'm lucky if I get the chance to see a buck on Glenwood.

Very neat! I drove past that area just two days ago, and with all the deer along the road was wondering if there was much wolf activity along the shore. Question answered!

Wolves are cool sight to see. I've been going to grand marais since I was in diapers (26 years) and had never seen a wolf up there until 2 years ago...in that time I've been up there about 6 times and have seen wolves each of those times. Never able to get any pics though...those are really good shots.

Neat stuff there.

Interesting that the wolf with the limp was being cared for.

It was strange to see them taking care of him for sure. The picture of the 2 sitting with the one lying down and feeding was strange to say the least, they would drag a piece of carcass to him and then back away and sit......when he got up and moved, they would move in.

Where in Castle Danger did you see them? So cool that you could get within camera range. I wonder if the locals hear them howl at night. I've spent much time in Casle Danger (mostly summer) and have only heard dogs barking in the distance. Never wolves howling. It's an eiry yet exciting sound that kept me and some friends up far too late one evening while backpacking on Isle Royale.

Castle Danger, just past the 2nd tunnel on the way up Hwy 61. I saw another lone wolf on Monday in the passing lanes between the tunnels. From what I have heard, the locals hear them plenty!

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
