Wolves are going to be delisted from Federal regulation, and the states will have management responsibilities to ensure the wolf populations don't get down to the level to where they have to go back on the list.
The only exception are some Mexican wolves down in the SW.

Good to hear! The states currently in control have shown that they are more than capable of managing these species on their own. Bravo to the .gov for stepping down. That seems to be a rare occurance these days!
Wolf hunting isn't easy. You have to locate where they are first. That could mean getting tips at the local coffee shop from ranchers. Or it could mean driving around at night, rolling down your windows and calling. Once you have them located it is a matter of literally tracking them down - following tracks until you catch up. I say this because this is the approach that I've taken, but I have not been successful yet But others have with this simple approach.
There is probably no better replacement than lots of time in the field, getting to know an area inside and out. Then you will know if there are wolves there, and where they hang out. Wolf hunting probably depends less on certain wolf hunting skills, and more on knowing an area - the land - and where the wolves are.
