wolf hunt

Wyoming Game and Fish have now closed Gray Wolf Hunt Area 8, the Fish Creek Management Unit north of Jackson because the mortality quota of seven wolves has been reached there.  Spokesman Ray Hagaman says the wolf seasons close in hunt areas where the species is classified as a trophy game animal when the mortality quota is reached or will close when the season closes on December 31st should the quota not be reached in an area.  So far, he says 35 wolves have been taken across Wyoming in this year’s hunt.  An additional 18 wolves have been reported taken in other parts of the state.  He says hunters from throughout the state have been very cooperative in reporting their wolf harvest and in bringing their animals in for the collection of genetic samples and other data.  He adds that the wolf harvest has been evenly distributed throughout the two trophy game management areas with harvests in many different packs – no one pack is bearing a disproportional amount of the harvest.  Only one hunt area in the Jackson management unit remains open with a limit there of a single wolf.
