I have a friend that has been called to trap seven Wolves in a semi populated area on the north shore of lake Superior. The Wolves came into one guys yard and attacked his dogs. The guy ran out with a rifle and killed one of the Wolves. When the control trapper went to make some sets by a neighbors property he was promptly told no. It turns out the neighbor has been baiting the Wolves so he can get pictures etc in his yard. The neighbor also has a dog of his own and appears to be so stupid that he doesn't think the Wolves will eat his dog. What would you guys suggest to my friend as a method in this situation. All pocket and flat sets have not worked. Snares are out because of the neighbor. This is almost a no-win situation and these Wolves are smart.

Neighbor or no neighbor, only thing left would be blind sets in the trails they are using or maybe pee post sets (they will mark on any canid urine, including domestic dog).  JMO

My friend got all seven of them. We think he may have gotten the Alpha male first. He used flat sets with the trap out 10" from the scent (The Federal trapper school told us to set as close to the scent as possible) The thing that really seemed to work best was bait piles made from road killed Deer. He cabled them to a tree and set the trails coming and going although hard to read with no snow. Only one Wolf had mange.

David,
   Excellent work!  That should sure help the local deer population as well as keeping the domestic dogs safe.  Glad to hear the mission was a success.  If you have any pictures, we would love to see them.
