Wolves in Lower Peninsula?

Postby HoneyHole » Fri Mar 13, 2009 1:11 pm

I was out scouting a couple weeks ago in Arenac County and found a couple tracks that are huge. I don't know of any large dogs in the area. So what do you think? Or is it just a big coyote?

I wouldn't doubt it. I've talk a few people who said they have seen wolfs in Grayling.

Deerhuntinglover22,
I would be way interested in seeing those cougar pictures if you can get them. My in-laws have a farm on Grass Lake Road which is right on the Isabella County/ Mecosta County line.

I wouldnt be shocked at all.. Ive heard about it.. As for the cougar.. I have a buddy who hunts in Traverscity he saw one while deer hunting.

not sure how big your hand is, but if its an average mitt that would put that animal print in the size range of a wolf.

The way my hand is in the first picture is 5 1/2" thumbtip to the side of my hand. 4" from the side of my hand to my index finger. These are MUCH bigger than any coyote track I've ever seen. I have a trailcam in that area and I'm gonna pull the card tomorrow. Should be interesting, I hope.
