For those interested in the future of elk hunting and the role of the wolf, you might want to pick up this book:

Alaska's Wolf Man: The 1915-55 Wilderness Adventures of Frank Glaser
by Jim Rearden.

The story of Frank Glaser is a great read and his insight into the wolf is really fascinating. No stats or graphs just decades of a regular guy in the wild first as a market hunter, then a government hunter and evolving into a field expert on the wolf.

No macho hyperbole on hunting or surviving just a real-life mountain man before high-tech gear.

Lots of good stuff on bears, caribou, sled dogs, wolf-dog breeds. I think any predator or big game hunter would enjoy this book.

Just to be clear. Elk hunting is not directly addressed but the wolf's predatory relationship with caribou is similar.

The thing I found interesting was that Glaser had neither a love or hate relationship with wolves but he was a keen observer of their behavior. Other than hunters in planes I would be surprised if anyone has killed as many as he has.
