WGF Logo

Officials with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department say the state’s first wolf hunt has been evenly distributed throughout the Wolf Trophy Game Management Area and Seasonal Wolf Trophy Game Management Area.  According to Game and Fish Large Carnivore Section Supervisor Mark Bruscino, hunters throughout the state havebeen very cooperative in reporting their wolf harvests and in bringing their animals in for the collection of genetic samples and other data. As of Tuesday, 34 wolves had been reported harvested in trophy game areas of the state out of a quota of 52. An additional 16 wolves had been reported taken in other areas of the state.  Wolf seasons in the areas that remain open close December 31st or when the quota for an individual area is reached. The Game and Fish Department is also mounting an aggressive monitoring program, which includes capturing and collaring wolves, to ensure accurate estimates of Wyoming’s wolf population and genetic interchange among wolves in the Northern Rocky Mountain region.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
