The wolves of Castle Danger

13 posts in this topic

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!

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
