Wolf Lottery

Recommended Posts

I got a tag for the second year in a row! I do think the random draw and preference point system both have pros and cons.

what size gun do you guys use on wolfs? I am debating on what to use. I have a 22-250 and a 280. I was originally going to use my 22-250 but I am thinking I would need to reload some heavier shells for a wolf vs. a yote? because right now I am shooting 53 gr hornady ballistic for yotes

Loomy, you'd probably be fine with the 22-250. From what I've read wolves aren't very tough to kill.

I got mine with a 270 WSM shooting a Barnes 130 grain TTSX at about 3,400 fps. The wolf was about 10 yards away. It dropped it like a sack of potatoes. The shot was right through the heart with a pencil sized entrance and exit wound. Hide damage was minimal. Hit through both shoulders it may have been a different story, though.
