Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is reporting that the current wolf population in that state is 625 or more.  Fish Wildlife and Parks Director Jeff Hagener says the agency is in the process of putting together their required wolf conservation and management report for the federal government.  Hagener says the minimum numbers verified by Fish Wildlife and Parks at the end of 2012 included 625 wolves, in 147 packs, and 37 breeding pairs. While it’s the first time since 2004 that the minimum count has decreased, Hagener says Montana’s minimum wolf pack and breeding pair estimates increased slightly from 2011. The 2012 calculation, however, doesn’t include the 95 wolves taken by hunters and trappers between January first and February 28th of this year.  The formal report is expected to be finalized by April 12th.

However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • 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 […]
