It started out COLD, -9F and -26F wind chill. Luckily our gear performed as advertised and everyone avoided frostbite. We met our guide at 7am and quickly found a lone wolf prowling a herd of bison. The wolf had a limp from a previous injury but was still dangerous enough to keep the nearby bison and coyotes on edge. From there were traveled the park encountered the usual suspects - coyotes, big horn sheep, bison, and moose. The guide explained that most of the northern park wolf packs had followed the elk herds out of the park and that we might not see any more. Now worries, I have my wolf shot!
Tomorrow we plan to stalk a recent kill site for wolves, coyotes and foxes and undertake a long snowshoe hike in search of ermine.
