I almost had one on an Alberta moose hunt in the early 90's. I was drawing down on one at 300 yards as the guide was saying "don't shoot". He didn't think I could hit it. I should have zoned him out but didn't and didn't shoot.

Watcha need for wolves is Holland & Holland's .700 nitro express double... and somebody stupid enough to pull the triggers. When a .375 H&H will work on a cape buffalo, one wonders what would happen if you got excited when he charged, and accidentally yanked BOTH triggers at once. Each barrel fires a 1,000 grain bullet... Think about that: it's ONE THOUSAND grains. My heavy elk loads are only 180gr. That's not a rifle, it's a shoulder-mounted mortar!!!

I'd shoot it once. I'd like a crack at a wolf too. Hunting while being hunted seems pretty exhilarating.
Wolf tags are one thing, but they're in addition to the license, which is usually 10 times the price of an resident hunting license, so it ain't cheap. That being said, we could consider this next year: I'd like a wolf for my gun room, and I know a fantastic taxidermist in Rexburg.

I'm 99% certain the only additional license you'd need is a Conservation license. Non-resident is $10. So if all you wanted to hunt in Montana was wolf, you'd pay a total of $60. Depending on your age, you might have to provide proof of a hunter safety course.

that's worth looking into! I'm sure you need the Conservation License, but I don't know about the hunting license itself. You're spot-on about the hunter ed course; before 1970-something, you're ok.
