Wyoming Wolf Hunting Season Outlined


The following is part of an article from the Powell Tribune:

Want to hunt a wolf in Wyoming?

If all goes as planned, Wyoming hunters will be able to buy a gray wolf license for $18 on Oct. 1. Nonresidents will pay $180 for a license.

Wyoming Game and Fish officials outlined the draft regulations Wednesday night in Cody.

“This is a long time coming, as you all know,” said Mark Bruscino, statewide supervisor of the large carnivore management section.

Plans for Wyoming’s first wolf hunt come after years of litigation, court decisions, heated arguments and public meetings between wildlife officials, environmentalists and livestock producers.

In northwest Wyoming, wolves will be managed as trophy game animals year-round except in Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park and the Wind River Indian Reservation.

That area of the state will be divided into 12 hunting areas with a total wolf quota of 52. The trophy game season will take place from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31.

The plan also calls for a flexible zone covering northern Sublette and Lincoln counties and southern Teton County, where wolves will be managed as trophy game animals only from Oct. 15 until the end of the following February.
