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.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
