Otter Tail County (WDAY TV) -- We have quite the hunting and trapping story to share tonight.

An Otter Tail County man will have the "wolf story of a lifetime" to tell the Grandkids.


Bruce Hanstad is a long time trapper, and this week he got one for his personal record books. He trapped this 95-pound Timberwolf NorthEast of Perham near the Becker and Otter Tail County line.

The wolf is five and a half feet long. In recent weeks, several wolves have been trapped or hunted in the Henning and Deer Creek swamps. Hanstad's dark grey wolf is the largest he has seen or trapped.

The wolf hide will be tanned and the trophy will hang on Hanstad's wall.
