It's been a busy past month for me around home. I spent a good part of January guiding wolf hunters and slipping in some ice fishing here and there. It's a great time to wolf hunt in Ontario's Sunset Country Region - conditions are great right now. Our deer population took a big hit over the past couple of harsh winters but the wolf population is still strong. With fewer deer the wolves seem to be hitting baits a lot better than they have in the past. Hunting was great this year, most of my guest were successful.
Bret Amundson from Minnesota connected with a beautiful male in early January. We have to tag our wolves in the nose in Ontario.
Jake Hoffman from Minnesota with his second wolf in two trips.
Cory Anderson from South Dakota with his first wolf.
We hunt our wolves over bait which we try to freeze into the ice so they can't drag it away. I use deer and moose scraps left over from the fall hunting season for bait.
Pete Hill from Ontario with a nice lake trout he caught on Lake of the Woods.
Here is a nice limit of walleyes with a few perch mixed in...good eats! A great afternoon on Lake of the Woods!
This is the biggest perch that I have ever caught...a 13.5" monster that fell for a 1/4 oz Northland Buckshot Rattle Spoon while I was walleye fishing.
