Description: Aerial radio-tracking and observation showed total number of wolves per year in 2,060-sq. km. Area varied from 35 to 87 in winter and from 30 to 78 in spring and generally declined because of a decreasing deer herd. Since winter 1977-1978, the population has remained relatively stable because an increasing population has switched to preying on moose. The number of wolves preying on deer has continued to decline.
Keywords: deer, moose, territoriality, home range, radio-tracking, telemetry, predator, prey, Minnesota
