On October 20, the Wisconsin native joined a select group of only 18 hunters and trappers to take a wolf in the state’s wolf season when he trapped one of the reintroduced predators in Brule. “The wolf wound up weighing 62 pounds,” Keith told the Duluth News Tribune. “But in the brush, it looked like 100 pounds.
