    Haven’t heard that but wouldn’t doubt it. There was one shot in Buchanan CO not that long ago, and another one somewhere near there as well (NE IA). Where at in NW IA? During a deer drive?

    Pics are all over facebook. The guy was wearing orange so most likely was deer hunting. He said the DNR has possession for DNA testing.

    This was posted on Rock River Outdoors on Facebook.
    The shooter said it was mistaken for a coyote.

    Wowsers, look at the long legs on that thing! So is this another case where it was mistaken for a coyote?

    Awesome pics! Thanks for sharing guys.

    anyone know what happens to you if you shoot a wolf? I know technically you are not supposed to, but since they are SO rare, I have heard the DNR will let you off with a slap on the wrist if you cooperate and “turn yourself in” and supply them with the wolf for testing.

    If you play nice and be up front about it, do you suppose they give it back? I know if I cooperated and was honest and all that good stuff I’d be pretty PO’ed if I didn’t at least get the skull or something.

    Doubt they would give it back as otherwise it would set a bad precedent. This makes at least three wolves shot in Iowa in the past year and half or so. I expect they may start trying to educate the public and give out more than a slap on the wrist in the near future!

    I understand that completely. Just seems kinda crappy that you could be Johnny Do-Good and come to them with your wrongdoing and still be out everything. But alas, my generation is showing….only me/my peers expect rewards for doing what should be done anyway 🙄

    And yeah, I get it, ideally you made a mistake even killing such an animal anyway.

    Good. I hope they all get shot. Canada and Alaska are great places for them. The lower 48 is not

    I think south of I80 the feds might get involved.

    Good thing I only have to drive about 2 miles before I call the DNR.

    before anyone freaks out, that was a joke.

    Looks like a gray wolf. It has the correct short ears. The DNA will tell.

    The 2015-2016 Iowa Hunting/Trapping regulations still list the gray wolf as a furbearer, with a continuous closed season. I wonder if it would be legal to shoot under the statutes of it harassing livestock or threatening humans.

    If not 100% wolf he may get it back.

    I think it might be a hard sell. Attacks are very rare on humans and I found no reports, modern era, by single wolf. Checked Canada, Alaska and Russia. Livestock, very different story. There are many myths, false or ‘cut & paste’ stories out there. I.e. the 180# wolf in Idaho was bogus.

    He thought that was a coyote? Surprised he could see well enough to hit it. I agree we do not need wolves. But coyote. Stray dog maybe.
