The possibility of spotting wolverine tracks in the Montana wilderness was exciting.

By some estimates, there are only a few hundred of the elusive carnivores currently living in Montana.

Just three years ago, Steve Gehman, a Montana wildlife tracker of the highest order, trailed a wolverine through the yard of an Elliston resident, past Slate Creek Road and through the Little Blackfoot River area where I was about to start my first snowshoeing excursion Saturday morning.
