TEACHERS TAKE FLIGHT Civil Air Patrol Hosts an orientation for educators ByUAHTODO Star-Tribune staff writer With one hand on the open door, Sagewood Elementary School teacher Amanda Reinhardt hoisted herself into the cockpit of a 2007 Cessna Cool and collected, Reinhardt shared the helm with veteran pilot CoL John Mitchell, a wing commander with an Air Force auxiliary called the Civil Air Patrol.

Fifty-two wolves can be hunted in this year's season, which ends Wolves outside of the trophy management area can now be shot on sight Hunters must report a wolf kill in the trophy area within 24 hours. Once the quota is filled, the season closes.

The chances of actually shooting a wolf are akin to winning the lottery, Meyer said. "If I get a wolf or not I dont really care. It's really hard to go hunt one," he said. "Wolves are very smart and crafty, and they move a lot at night." Meyer spends most days in the woods as an outfitter, trapper, rnmtpr and snowmo-bflet He finds tracks and other signs, but in the past year, he's only seen three wolves. Once people start shooting at they wflj become even more elusive, he said Most people who bought tags are likely elk, deer or other big game hunters who want the opportunity to shoot a wolf if they see one, Nesvik said.
