Interesting.  You wonder how

Interesting.  You wonder how many wolf packs are out there that are not known.  Lots and lots of land out there in the west, and you can't find them all.  The population could be double what they estimate, or even more.

Yeah they always say that

Yeah they always say that there are no wolves in Colorado, while I have never seen one I have seen some tracks in the mud and snow that make me think it could have been a wolf.  I have talked to one guy that for sure has seen one in Colorado.

Wolves

They are all over NW Wyoming.  If there is readily available prey and certain conditions line up, it won't be long till some move down to CO.  Bye bye bugling if there are wolves in the area.

Do some checking

I did some checking last year and there was a lone female wolf spotted near rollinsville, Co. and one hit and killed by a car on I70 near Idahoe springs. Within the last few years.

Wolves

I have no doubt there are a few small pack of wolves in Colorado. I firmly believe they migrated down from the greater Yellowstone area over the past few years. I have hear of too many sightings from friend and reputable folks not to believe. Two years ago my son was camping west of Cottonwood Pass and told me he heard wolves howl several times at night over the 3 days they camped. That is all 100% national forest so no private property for a wolf rescue center or anything like that.  August 2010 my wife and I saw what we believed to be a wolf in the Canyon City area. It was a ways off however the body shape and lope of the animal was distinctively wolf. Have been to Yellowstone and have seen several wolves in my time so not a mistaken identity of a coyote or a dog. Talk to a local taxidermist who also has heard of sightings in the area. He spoke with DOW and they have had a few reports too. It is possible some of these sightings are wolf hybrids that have been released but I would guess most are not.

I just read a story about a

I just read a story about a guy in Central Idaho who had a pack of wolves come into a clear cut he was hunting.  He shot one and the others just kept circling around and checking things out, didn't even phase them.  So he shot another and finally they ran off.

Pretty scary to think that they won't run off even after you shoot one.

Smoke a pack a day!
