70 Attend Jackson Wolf Hunt Hearing

WGF Logo

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission conducted one of their public hearings on proposed wolf management regulations in Jackson this week.  The commission is proposing to cut the hunting quotas this year by about half.  With a quota of 52 cut last year, hunters killed 42 wolves during the trophy and seasonal trophy hunting season, and this year the proposed quota of 26 wolves is anticipated to cut the number of wolves in the trophy areas by about nine.  About 70 people showed up for the Jackson hearing, and Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says not everyone agreed with the proposal.  Gocke says it was a good mix of people on all sides of the question. Gocke says the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission hearing to take action on these regulations is set for July 9th and 10th in Saratoga. He says people may submit written comments to be reviewed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission prior to the meeting – sending them to the Game and Fish regional office in Casper by June 7th.
