I was bowhunting in Pioneer Zone opening opening week; hiked around cow calling looking for sign at 8500ft. Came into a clearing, heard a very loud bark followed by 4 very long very loud howls. I believe the wolf figured out I was not an elk and was calling off the pack. I did not get a visual, glassed the far canyon face for a while, completely quiet after that. So, how loud can these things howl? I know that’s hard to describe, but this seemed way louder than I would have ever expected. Granted, it was in a canyon, but still seemed crazy loud; practically felt the sound. BTW, did not see any elk!
