Wolf hunts in Wyoming could begin by fall 2012, under a proposed Game and Fish management plan.

If so, resident wolf tags will be about $15, said G&F Cody area trophy game supervisor Mark Bruscino.

There would be designated hunt areas – each with a mortality quota – as has long been the case with black bear and mountain lions, Bruscino said.

“The mortality quota system is a proven method for managing large carnivores,” he said.

Bruscino was the main speaker before an audience of about 50 people Aug. 25, at a public meeting in Cody regarding the proposed wolf management plan.

The next step will be a public comment period, lasting until Sept. 9.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will meet to discuss, finalize and vote on the plan Sept. 14.

After that, it will be up for federal review, and nation-wide comment period.

If all goes smoothly, wolves could be delisted in Wyoming by Oct. 1, 2012, Bruscino said.
