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!

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
