Wolf Patrol Returns to Monitor Bear Hunting in Forest County Wolf Caution Areas

Wolf Patrol is continuing its campaign monitoring bear hunting activities in areas where bear hunting hounds have recently been killed by wolves in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (CNNF). Portions of the CNNF in Forest County, Wisconsin have seen a total of five deadly conflicts between bear hounds and wolves, making it the number one county in Wisconsin for wolf depredations on hunting dogs.

On October 6, Wolf Patrol monitors were monitoring continued bear hunting where wolves depredated a bear hound on September 30, 2018. The above video is an edited conversation between bear hunters operating in the area and Wolf Patrol monitors. The full unedited video will be available online at a later date.

Wolf Patrol welcomes civil conversation and respectful debate with those engaged in hunting practices which we oppose. We’d like to thank the hound hunters we shared our opinions with this morning and wish them a safe hunting rest of their season.
