Where to hunt Wolf
Wolf hunting opportunities exist in many European and Asian countries, including Spain, Bulgaria, Macedonia, the Baltic states, and Belarus, as well as Russia and Kazakhstan. In the USA wolves are considered an endangered species and are protected in most states, excluding Montana and Idaho. However, in most Canadian provinces and Alaska wolves are abundant (some Canadian provinces still pay bounty for wolf harvest).
The most affordable wolf hunting opportunities are to be found in Canada and Belarus, where they start an about $1,000. Due to difficulty and unpredictability of wolf hunting, there are two kinds of offers. Some outfitters add wolf hunting to a combination hunt offer for the price of a tag.

When to hunt Wolf?
The main trophy of wolf hunting being the skin, guided hunts are usually scheduled to periods when the wolf fur is in prime condition, which would naturally be in winter. In the late winter months wolves may be especially vulnerable to hunters due to lack of food, but high snow in typical wolf habitat limits the hunters’ mobility. November and December typically offer the best compromise.

It takes a lot of work to outsmart such an intelligent predator as the wolf, and all hunting methods are used in various times and locations. A lot of combination hunts are opportunistic, where the hunter and guide just keep their eyes open and if they see a wolf they try and get it. Calling, both by imitating prey animals and doing the wolf howl to make the resident pack think someone intruded into their territory, works well, and so does biting. Last but not the least, driven hunts, with or without dogs, or limiting the animals’ movements with a line of flags on a rope, is highly successful in Europe. Often guides practice a combination of methods, e.g., attracting wolves to the area by bait, locating them by calling, and then put the hunter on a high seat or arrange a drive.
Why hunt Wolf?
Similar in size and behavior (being social creatures), humans and wolves have always competed for food and territory. The conflict led to wolves’ extermination in most of the so-called civilized countries, but it wasn’t easy. Harvesting this intelligent predator taxes the hunter’s ability to the maximum, and deeply embedded memories of the age-long conflict make wolf hunting a highly emotional pursuit. This makes a wolf skin – provided you were the person who harvested the animal - much more than just a rug.
