Interesting reading on the story of the wolf, Three Toes. They believe he was the "last" buffalo wolf, but have now found similar DNA in the Great Lakes wolves.

Precious little on the internet about Clyde Briggs. Like most of that type of men, writers, historians and educators don't want to write much about hard men who did hard things that made this country great. Like the trappers of old, you can find their stories, but they aren't the stuff of American legend that they should be.

Appears to be Winchester 1895 carbine. Presuming 30 US (30-40). Anyone know for sure?

I know the history of "Old Three Toes". Having spent a lifetime trapping wolves in Alaska, Idaho, Wyoming, Russia, Mongolia, I understand the "magic". Thanks for the post, Boone. I understand the "magic" of those coyotes hooked up in the shadow of that rock cairn where Old Three Toes met his demise. Neat history...Thanks.

Yes it is. He was known in quite a large area but caused most of the problems in SD.
