There are people who spend days, weeks or months at a time chasing the wolves and studying their behavior in Yellowstone National Park. Although I only had 5 days to see them in the park, I got very lucky! Last year I went in search of seeing wild wolves and got skunked. This year I got a pretty good show! I even saw one on the road. It takes perseverance to be out in the cold temps with snow falling and possible wind blowing. When you see a wolf all that gets forgotten and excitement kicks in. I even saw a wolf walking down the road right at our car! Now keep in mind you could be standing around for hours and never see a wolf or you could see a wolf close right away. It’s about luck of your timing and what the wolves happen to be up to. Of course, it helps to constantly be on the lookout and be out there at sunrise. I have not felt quite as excited as my first sighting with my naked eye of the wolves. We saw the Junction Butte pack along with 755 (who is formerly the alpha male of the Lamar Valley). Would I recommend going to Yellowstone in search of the wolves? Yes! But be aware you could be skunked. The second time was the charm for me and of course, it helped knowing where to look and having a good eye for spotting wildlife. Breathtaking, amazing and unbelievable are my best words to describe my feelings at the sight of seeing wolves with my naked eye. It doesn’t hurt to have a nice scope and/or binoculars as many times they are visible from quite a distance.
