    So they are going to fine this guy even though it took them weeks and tests to determine it was a Grey Wolf and not a coyote. If they had to run tests on the animal to determine that, how in the world was a hunter hunting legal game suppose to tell the difference in the field.

    rules are rules i guess. sounds like they are giving him as little punishment as possible, while still actually enforcing the law.

    It's funny they took that long to figure it was a wolf.
    But me as a hunter, i won't shoot ANYTHING if i am NOT 100% sure what it is. If there is ANY question, you do not pull the trigger.

    Agreed, but in the same sense if they couldn't tell until after weeks of study that it wasn't a coyote, how as a coyote hunter are you suppose to at X amount of yards? It is not like shooting a doe with only a buck tag.. or an albino animal.. I have seen plenty of wolves and coyotes, they are easy to tell apart in the woods, but if they could without testing, I am sure I would have made the same mistake.

    Clear cut case.. absolutely fines are appropriate.. but in this case.. I think it is incorrect. That or maybe I have been reading to much of the book, "Belicheck - Keys to success". :lol:

    He probably should have videotapes the animals and looked for some "signs"

    My gosh. I could tell the difference between a gray wolf and a coyote with my glasses off. The question I have is why did it take so long to figure that out?

    I'd love to see a photo of it, to see why it was so difficult. And heck, if it took the DNR special tests to prove either way, to me, the guy shouldn't even be fined. If the "professionals" can't tell by sight, they should NOT prosecute the hunter.

    Rules are rules I guess, but if it took them that long to find out it was a wolf then how did the guy shooting it know? Wolves do look similar to Coyotes. Oh well it is what it is.

    we have coyotes right out side out window off and on during the year and I have seen them...I wondered how could someone mistake those for a Wolf, they look so much smaller then the wolves I seen at the zoo..

    So I decided to compare the two from pictures on google

    Now, I am pretty sure we all know which is which, but if there are trees in the way I can see how it would be a big misunderstanding..Specially if it is a HYBRID as the DNR is saying
