Yellowstone used to have a group of researchers who monitor the wolf packs there. I don't know if they are still there. I was there in the winter about 2 years ago, and because the access (roads) are also open to the public, they couldn't turn us away. So, if you are at a stop where they are stopped, they give very quiet (whispers) "mini-lectures" about what is going on..which pack is which, who's the alpha, etc. I got to see some wolves through a binoculars (only, not visible by eye); two packs, what the researchers interpreted as setting boundries. Both packs were "lounging" in the sun, near the shared edge of their respective territories.
However, given the recent movement by Wyoming and Idaho to open hunting to include wolves, you might want to go sooner rather than later............................
(I don't remember if Montana is pushing wolf hunting as well, but, since most of Yellowstone is in Wyoming and the western border is very close to Idaho, you've got more or less 99% of Yellowstone with potential wolf hunting.)
