This picture was sent to me by a buddy saying this wolf and coyote (holy crap, look at the size of that wolf!) were taken in Barnes county.  Just wondering if any of you have had personal run-ins with wolves in ND.   I'm not talking about anything your sisters neighbors uncle may have said one time...

 Yes, there has been multiple confirmed sightings in ND over the past few years. There was even one killed out east in the past few years, guy said he thought it was a coyote.... he had a few charged pressed on him.

This is a good answer.  Good thing you cant see the license plate in the picture.

According to these, it can be ok in eastern ND:

 well if if was legally taken and the GNF allows him to sell the fur i would try and sell it! Rare all white or black wolves bring can bring in a lot of money if the fur is right in Canada.

 North of Lakota this fall, 2 buddies were out scouting for ducks and saw what they claimed was way to big to be a coyote. Wasn't sure if I should believe them but maybe I should.

 i have seen 1 wolf in nd, it was near berlin nd, (between edgeley/lamoure)

you will know when you see a wolf, lol

i had a shotgun with, and could've easily dumped it in the ditch, but shooting it didnt even cross my mind................until after the fact 

i was in awe

i could tell it was a wolf, because of the way it looked................................

 I saw one 2 years ago when out pheasant hunting in the south western part of the state. Was twice the size of a coyote and was not afraid of me one bit. Just stood on the hill top 75yds away then slowly walked away. Then heard a howel later that evening that was for sure not a coyote.

One was killed in a predator control trap a few years ago East of Mchenry, ND.  I believe the landowner shot it from a distance and had a "holy crap" moment when he got closer.  No charges filed.

Saw something 2 years back that looked lots bigger than a german sheppard.  Thought I was see'n things.  Saw it again last year, running with a black dog, the dog looked pretty small next to it.  I know this dog, its good sized and laid into my arm once this past winter.  A couple neighbors have also seen it, no one wants to call it a wolf, so we call it a very big wild dog.  Whatever it is, is not afraid of people.  It was close to my house, makes me nervous.  We've heard howls at night that sounded like, but no way in heck is a yote.  Too loud and deeper toned.

 They are to the east, west, and north of ND and I don't think they know where the state/country borders are so I would guess yes

Was workin up nw of crosby (about as close to Canada as you can get) this fall, and am about 90% sure I saw a wolf. Or it was the worlds largest coyote!!

Worked with a guy this past summer that saw one run across Hwy 22 just N of Killdeer.

 I'm curious as to how long it will take until there is packs that call the badlands home?  I  hope it never happens but would honestly be surprised if it doesn't eventually considering there is strong populations in MT & MN.

I work for a company man just south of Mandaree and he swears that he saw a wolf on the way to a location one day. He said it ran across the road right in front of him in the day light. This was about 2 weeks ago.

I'm gonna guarantee that buck a ride in the pickup truck!

Dont you think with all these so called sightings that there would be a trail cam picture or just a outdoorsman carrying a camera,   I call BS on 90 percent of the sightings.  They are pack dogs and rarely would you see just one at a time with all the sightings reported!!

 This reminds me of the early years of "mountain lion sightings" but with far less people calling bs. Hmmmmmm wonder y

Soon enough an established population will be recognized by the ndgf and a season opened.
