The one I killed in Idaho had genetic samples taken from it when I checked it in. I will give them 6 months and get in touch and see how old she was and what if anything they learned from the DNA sample.
One thing that really needs noted is that these Canadian Gray Wolves are not nearly as big as some people are claiming. The largest one checked in in Idaho so far was 125 pounds yet I have read numerous accounts of 200+ pounders. The one I killed was 88 pounds but by the time I left Idaho she had grown to 180!
No doubt they are large canines but if you hear of a 200 pounder I would be skeptical. I don't think they break 100 pounds very often even in Alaska.
