This encounter was in June 2016. Someone just mentioned to me that I should report it. Wolverine bounding over the snowy slope toward us, about 70 yards away, until my wife spotted him and shouted "Look!" at which point the wolverine stopped and then ran up the hill and into the bushes. Color was like in the stock photo shown above. Size was estimated at 2-3ft long. No identifiable features at that distance.

I'm pretty familiar with what a wolverine looks like because my dad went to the University of Michigan (The Wolverines) and raised me as a fan. After the sighting a looked up photos of wolverines and compared those photos to other animals like badgers to make sure that I had indeed seen what I thought.
