2013 Wyo Wolf Hunt More Conservative

WGF Logo

Officials with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department say since the state’s goals of a reduced population through hunting and control actions in 2012 were successful, reductions in 2013 will be more conservative.  The department released a report yesterday indicating that through that hunt, the state’s wolf population was reduced from 192 individuals to 169 – three fewer than the goal. The number of breeding pairs was also reduced from 19 to 15. Chief Game Warden Brian Nesvik says the first wolf hunting season last year was designed to reduce the wolf populations in the state using a conservative, adaptive approach. Nesvic says Wyoming’s strategy for managing wolves will continue to focus on slightly reducing the population over the next year. Wyoming is required to maintain at least 150 wolves and 15 breeding pairs including those protected in Yellowstone National Park and on the Wind River Reservation.
