Let’s Go Hunt 023 – Wolfnapping

Welcome to another episode of Let’s Go Hunt! – the everyman’s hunting podcast.. We aren’t experts, but we’re out there doing it. Join us on our journey!  As always we have:

Mike Gonçalves,  master mechanic

Dave Packard, it’s still not a truck Mike….

And here – I’m the Sam Alexander

Tonight we’re talking about wolf ass


  • Ballot box animal management

Dude I used to work with’s wife….

Concerns of livestock – owners can be compensated at FMV if wolves take livestock

election results – what this shows, on so many levels

They anticipated 84% of the state would vote yes.  It barely passed.

The Ute reservation, which is labeled acceptable wolf ground, is opposed to wolves being reintroduced


  • Colorado Wolf Restoration and Management Plan
  • Bert B “Shoot em’ all!!!!!”
  • Livestock impact
    • Colorado is a very large livestock producer (cattle, sheep, chickens, goats, pigs, buffalo, )
  • Community impact
    • Wolves will travel from the introduction area into suburban areas. Outdoor activities will now be at higher risk. Pets? 
  • Wildlife impact
  • “How many children?” – anti-gunners
  • Wolves will be delisted from the State Threatened and Endangered species list and classified as delisted, nongame (Phase 3) when a minimum count of at least 150 wolves anywhere in Colorado is observed for 2 successive years, or a minimum count of at least 200 wolves anywhere in Colorado is observed, with no temporal requirement.


  • Back in January I looked over the draft that CPW put out on the reintroduction back in January and I took notes back then, so it’s time to use ‘em.
  • Using the notes off my phone. 
  • How is killing them not a long term solution? Death is rather permanent
  • There is a reason this was put to a vote instead of being left up to the people who actually know what the hell they’re doing.

From Matt G who I am not going to dox… I think

Yall, for elk/big game hunting most everyone agrees on cut on contact fixed broadheads. Single bevel 2 blades are the toughest and will gave the most penetration. This help if you have a poor shot/shot angle. There are also single bevel 3 blades but they are rare. 3 blade fixed heads are great because you can easily sharpen them to reuse them multiple times. For finding your arrows after the shot use a good lighted nock. I like the woody’s starburst nocks, you can also use a retroreflective arrow wrap under your vanes which makes it easy to see at night with a flashlight. I use the onestringer arrow wraps, you can also have them customized if you are in a state that requires names or other info on your arrow.

The biggest thing that helps with arrow penetration is TAW total arrow weight and FOC front of center. Most agree on a 550 grain to 600 grain taw for hunting larger/tougher game like elk, moose, hogs, and bear.
