I guess I wasn't thinkin too much. Deer cam would be incorrect. Game cam would be polite, but probably bear cam would more correct, specially in that part of the world. None the less, its a pretty good wolf shot. Lets hope no one is using one to plan a real "special" trophy.

Some more wolf news. Looks like OR-7 won't be going to Burning Man.

There will always be some locals that don't really care whether he is 'protected' or not. Awful hard to prosecute if you Shoot, Shovel, and Shut Up. Of course, the 'Shut Up' part always seems to fail... especially after a few beers... :lol:

He seems to like it in the area. The abnormally low snow cover is not driving him to warmer climes.

Another wolf article. This one is interesting as it talks about how they track the pack up in Wallowas.

Wolf OR7 Returns to Oregon

Postby rlown » Fri Mar 02, 2012 9:32 pm

From the DFG at http://cdfgnews.wordpress.com/2012/03/0 ... to-oregon/:

Wolf OR7 Returns to Oregon

MARCH 2, 2012

Media Contacts:
Kirsten Macintyre, DFG Communications, (916) 322-8988
Eric Loft, DFG Wildlife Branch, (916) 445-3555
Karen Kovacs, DFG Region 1 Wildlife Program, (530) 225-2312

After drawing much public attention for his historic trek into California, the gray wolf designated as OR7 has turned north and crossed back into Oregon.

Originally part of a wolfpack in northeastern Oregon, OR7 wandered more than 1,062 miles in Oregon in September through December of last year before crossing into California last December 28. Gray wolves were extirpated in California the 1920s, leading to speculation that OR7 might be the first wolf to reestablish roots in the Golden State.

While in California, the wolf trekked south through eastern Siskiyou County, traveled through northeastern Shasta County and then resided in Lassen County for a few weeks. On Feb. 11 he re-entered Shasta County and then, about a week later, he crossed north into Siskiyou County. The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) has continued to monitor his whereabouts through the use of a satellite tracking collar, and has been updating his status on our website at http://www.dfg.ca.gov/wolf/.
