A Pack Of Wolves Was Spotted In Colorado For The First Time In 90 Years

Trevor Nace

Jan 25, 2020,07:30am EST

It’s been 80 years since the last wolf was hunted and killed in Colorado, leaving the state, which was once abundant with wolves, without any.

Recently, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) confirmed that they saw a pack of 6 or more wolves in the northwest of Colorado. These wolves, which are roaming around Moffat County are the first pack that has called Colorado their home since the 1930s.

On January 19, CPW officials saw large wolf tracks circling an animal carcass in Moffat County and while they didn’t initially see the wolves they heard wolves howling in the area. Then, officials located the pack about two miles away from the animal carcass, identifying about six wolves in total.


I have personally killed wolves where they were not supposed to be before. Like a few hundred miles from where they should be. USFWS are a bunch of liars when it comes to their little pet projects.


"A pack of wolves was spotted in Colorado." Yes, I am aware of this, everyone is. Key word is "a." "A" pack of wolves is not the reason the OP didn't see any elk in three weeks.

Typical commie closet liberal smokepole response, after you get your azz handed to you.

You asked "Do tell", and rockinbbar Did tell, and like the closet slimy liberal you are, you come back and spin the narrative after you were TOLD what YOU had "asked" to be told, because you're not man enough to take an azz woopin on the internet, which makes your signature so damn hilarious.....freaking mentally sick, you are.

Plenty of elk in Co.

This time of year, they are usually on north facing slopes in dark timber, bedded down or playing in mud holes, and feeding above timberline early and late.

There is a big local group of maybe ~200 head that live and play all around Loveland, Co. I live in a full-fledged urban sprawl neighborhood at the end of a Cul-De-Sac, and my cameras have caught elk eating bird feed out of feeders at my neighbors house.

Anyhow.... I spend most of my elk time around Walden. This time of year, if I wanted to see home elk, I'd focus on NW Jackson County (Mt. Zirkel wilderness, above timberline - Davis peak, for example), or south Jackson County, near the continental divide.

For early archery and muzzleloader I might even run those areas, but later rifle season......... I ain't tellin'

Tough to be part of the convo when your experience dates back to the early 70’s. Back then the wildlife authorities would drop dynamite on the elk herds to break them up rather than allow poachers to slaughter them. I’m talking the New Mexico side of the Co/NM border on the east side of the Rio Grande.

Ha Ha them was the good old days! Used to see small planes with tape over the tail numbers (day before season opener) circle low into the timber basins followed by loud explosions. Opening morning crack of dawn sounded like WWIII. Rest of the trip would be hauling quarters. These days you could go back to the same general area and never find a track in three days.

LOL, you can't make this stuff up. "elkslayer" to the rescue!!! Dumbass, there's one pack in Colorado, and it's nowhere near the places the OP visited.

Beware the wolves. Once they arrive they breed like rabbits. Oregon had NONE for forever, until #07 came through. He magically found two mates in a state with no wolves and started having litters. Now their tracks show up all over, in 5 years or so. A buddy saw a pup the other day. ironically, he said there was zero blacktail deer sign anywhere in the area.
