Aperçu du document
Yellowstone Wildlife Tours
Yellowstone Wolf Tracker arranges custom single and multiple-day wildlife watching
excursions, year-round with national park service approved providers, The Wild Side,
LLC. Our guides are very experienced wildlife biologists who have been tracking and
observing wolves since reintroduction in 1995. They combine natural and cultural
history, scientific investigation, conservation advocacy, film documentary, and
extensive on-the-ground experience.
The best seasons for wolf viewing are winter,
spring, and fall, which are also quiet times in the
park; however, we offer the service throughout
the year. Outings originate near the north
entrance of the park where we typically meet
groups in the early morning at Gardiner,
Montana; or a nearby location upon
Your best opportunity to view and learn about wolves in their natural habitat lies in
hiring a guide and spending a day tracking and observing these elusive wild animals.
Along the way guests are also likely to see large herds of elk and bison, as well as,
grizzly bears, eagles, moose, pronghorn antelope, mountain goat, bighorn sheep,
coyotes, black bears, and others. Possible, too, are sightings of river otters, badgers,
pine martens, owls, and other more rare wildlife.
Winter Wolf Watching
While the temperatures for winter months can be
frigid, there is no better time to be observing
Yellowstone's wolf packs. Watching wild wolves
with the experts in Yellowstone's premier wolf
spotting season is often the most rewarding and
amazing experience we can offer. Your hosts are Dr.
Nathan Varley, a native of Yellowstone whose has
studied wolf & elk ecology, and Linda Thurston,
whose experience includes research and cuttingedge wolf conservation techniques.
Extensive observation time takes place in the
morning with snowshoe excursions in the
afternoon. Guests enjoy catering by exalted chef
Zac Kellerman. Past special guests for winter
programs have included Doug Smith, Dan Stahler,
Jim Halfpenny, Dan Hartman, and Bob Landis.
Wolf and Wildlife Watching
Winter months are exceptional for touring Yellowstone and
observing animal behavior. During winter, the snow pushes
elk and bison to valley bottoms. Wolves follow the grazers,
creating a perfect opportunity to view them as they
concentrate in smaller areas.
We pride ourselves on having an exceptional staff comprised
of local biologists and naturalist photography guides that
have worked extensively in the Yellowstone ecosystem.
They know the territories of 5 different wolf packs, and can
tell you about the individuals in the packs and explain
behavior that you may be lucky enough to observe. They can
also describe other wildlife species and their role in the
ecosystem, including bison, elk, bighorn sheep, mountain
goats, moose, coyotes, foxes, eagles, and ravens.
