In January 2022, I observed Adrain Wydeven and Sarah Boles Monitoring gray wolves in the Chequomegon-Nicolet National Forest for an article I was writing, “Tracking Wisconsin’s Elusive Gray Wolf,” first published in Silent Sports Magazine’s April 2022 issue and reprinted with permission. This February, I will make the journey north to film Adrian and Sarah monitoring gray wolves during the height of the wolf’s breeding season along with the film’s co-producer Manish Bhatt.
The following is an excerpt from the article I wrote.
“Wife and husband Sarah Boles and Adrian Wydeven have been tracking the gray wolf in northern Wisconsin for decades now. Sarah grew up as an urbanite who found her heart in the northern forest. Adrian led the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Wolf Recovery Program from 1990 through 2013. They live just outside Cable, Wisconsin, in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, a 1.5-million-acre woodland that cuts across northern Wisconsin. The Cable area boasts the most extensive community-wide, multi-use trail system in the United States, earning the title Charter Trail Town USA by the American Hiking Society.”
We look forward to observing and filming Adrian and Sarah monitoring Wisconsin’s gray wolf!
