Nakina Fly-in Wolf Hunting:
Because of the high population of Moose and the late season migration of Caribou traveling south into the area there is a large population of wolves just waiting for the feast to begin. Wolves are often seen by bear hunters at the bait stands and wolves are also seen running the game trails looking for Moose. Moose hunters often stake-out a game trail coming down to the water where there is a high probability of seeing a Moose and having a clear shot. Wolves often have the same idea and will congregate near the water waiting for a Moose to come down for a drink.
Wolf packs break up in the spring and the wolves travel in pairs during the summer but in the fall the pack gets back together so they can hunt together during the winter. They call out to each other to re-form the pack and hunters can hear them and estimate their location.
Moose and Bear hunters can buy an addition small game license and harvest a wolf. We also offer a Moose-Wolf hunting combo package.
