Individual(s) Observed (seen)
November 2, 2019. Antelope Creek Drainage (Tributary of Big Lost River). Saw 2 wolves on a ridge between Horsethief Creek and Antelope Creek. Usually there was a single wolf sitting, just watching. The sun was just coming up and was shining off it. Another wolf came and went. Sometimes they were both standing. Watched them off and on for about a half hour through the binoculars. Neither was black or white; they were just brown. Also heard a single wolf howling in the early morning hours from the same location, and again in the evening hours.

Mixed sagebrush, Douglas Fir, and Engleman Spruce. Small canyons. Seasonal springs in most draws. Year-round creeks in main canyons. Immediately below the wolves, on the Antelope Creek side of that ridge, is a deep canyon choked full of Douglas Fir and Engleman Spruce (the spruce are higher up). The Horsethief side has more open sagebrush. That's the direction the wolves were watching. There is at least one spring, high up, and a couple nice meadows lower down. Seen wolf sign in there multiple times in the last 20 years.

Within the first two hours after sunrise, on November 2, 2019. Could have been November 9, but I'm pretty sure it was November 2.
