Passed on a black wolf

I just got back from a BC moose hunt where I passed up a close shot at a large black wolf. There was plenty of time, but the guide and I were about 150 yards from our set up spot for the evening hunt which a shot would have ruined. We had seen a bull enter the woods there in the morning. We were going to try to call him in. Nothing showed.

I know I may come to regret not taking the shot as it was probably a once in a lifetime opportunity, but I was more interested getting a moose at the time. As it was, I shot a bull the next morning. On the way out we looked where we had been calling and there was a monster bull. He must have come after dark to our calling.

Sounds to me like you made the right choice. That bull may have left the area had you shot the evening before. Congrats on getting your moose.
