A report from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department this weekend revealed that the number of wolves killed by hunters in one area of the Trophy Zone exceeded the quota. According to the report, hunters killed eight animals in area eight of the Jackson Management Unit where seven were allotted. Game and Fish Spokesman Eric Keszler says incidents like that can happen sometimes when two hunters take an animal on the same day without being aware of the other completing the quota. He adds it also happens from time to time in areas where other species like bears and mountain lions are managed. Keszler says the state actually planned for such a contingency in setting the quotas, and the incident does not create problems for the state’s wolf management plan. All-in-all, Keszler says, the state’s first wolf hunting season has been going quite well. Keszler says Game and Fish officials in the field report that the hunt is going very smoothly so far with the harvest very well distributed across the trophy game area and excellent cooperation from the hunters in reporting their harvests and bringing the animals in so that genetic samples can be taken. As of Monday afternoon, 38 wolves had been taken by hunters in the trophy game zone and 19 had been killed in the remainder of the state.
