Those planning to participate in wolf trapping efforts in the Upper Snake River Region of Idaho are required to have completed an Idaho Fish and Game Department-sponsored course before engaging in that activity.  To that end, a workshop has been scheduled one week from Saturday in Idaho Falls.  Pre-registration is required and participation is available to the first 25 who enroll.  Last season was the first opportunity that sport trappers in Idaho had a chance to test their skills against wolves.  So far over 1,000 trappers statewide have taken the required workshop.  At the end of this year’s season, 124 wolves had been trapped, not including those as part of management actions.  Similar classes are scheduled through September and October in Montana for trappers there.

    If you’re really serious about hunting, you’re probably not listening to this. Depending on where you are in the state, the sun’s either up already or sunrise isn’t far away. If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
    U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a ruling last week that removed wolves from Wyoming control and put them back under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. That ruling put an end to hunting wolves anywhere in the state, whether they’re in the trophy game area in the northwestern corner […]
