Figure roughly 100 sq. mi. to support a mature wolf, year around
Where did you get that key premise in your statement, Art? I should think, just off the top of my non-scientist head, that an entire mature pack of (7-10) wolves could be supported by 20-50 square miles......

Let's see....there are 3 thriving packs in Yellowstone, and Yellowstone is 3468 sq. miles. Hmmm, that is over 1,000 sq. miles per pack, and if a pack is 10 wolves, about 100 sq. miles per wolf - so looks like you are right after all - still, is there a source/link to that fact?
