January 28, 2006 was an unusually warm Saturday at Sandhill Skills Center near Babcock, Wisconsin. We had a light rain and our bus ride to Wolf Country was not filled with excitement. We weren’t sure we wanted to get wet and muddy if there was so little chance of finding good wolf sign. Everyone was pleasantly surprised shortly after departing the bus when we found beautiful big wolf tracks in the mud.
