    Any reports of wolves in the Eugene area? Me and the daughter child were hunting off of Simonsen Rd opening day of rifle, walking a skid road, when we met up with a large black wolf looking critter coming out of the wood line. We were about 10 yards from it and only saw it's head and neck as we stared at it and it stared back for about 10 seconds. It had beautiful black fluffy fur and looked larger than a yote. I'm 99% sure it was a wolf.

    Purportedly, they use the code-name "grey fox" when they are released into the wild.

    You would be a 100% sure if you shot it or just end up with a beautiful black fluffy fur of a unique looking coyote o_O

    It's possible. I cut tracks a couple weeks ago near the pacific crest trail and have heard of tacks west of Carlton but didn't see them personally. With how quickly the breed and how far they can travel it's very possible that there's a small number in the coast range.

    How can you be sure that the tracks west of Carlton are not those from my German shepherds?

    I can't, I didn't see them as I noted in my post and I never said I fully believed it. But I do believe it is a remote possibility

    Ya they can be pretty wild at times. :p

    I have two Black German shepherds that spend many days with me out in the woods, so don't be too quick to blast that "Wolf" lol.

    Yes, I was mostly kidding Rock Solid.. I received a picture of a moma moose in Oregon near La Grande Oregon from my uncle, so anything is possible.. Near is in loose translation givin I do not recall the exact location given

    Well that picture did not come first hand from him, a friend of his took the pic.
    Anyways that would be interesting to see more moose roaming around

    Heard about a ODFW Tracked Wolf seen East of Medford recently. Cougars are killing livestock all over Oregon. One was shot the other day in Canby and one was shot near Roseburg recently.

    I've hunted areas up that road for 20 years. I've never seen tracks from what I think was a wolf. There's lots of houses all around the base of that "mountain", I'd be slow to shoot.
