The 2013 wolf hunting season only began October first, but already, the quota in one area near Jackson has been filled and the hunt area closed.  According to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, the quota set for Area Ten was one wolf, and it was harvested Tuesday morning.  Area ten is generally located southeast of Jackson as far south as the Rim.  Hunters harvesting wolves in areas where wolves are classified as Trophy Game Animals are required to report the kill within 24 hours.  Altogether, 26 wolves have been set as the quota for all trophy game areas in Wyoming collectively.  At the end of 2012, there were an estimated 169 wolves and 15 breeding pairs in the trophy game area. Wyoming is required to maintain 100 wolves and 10 breeding pairs outside Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Indian Reservation under an agreement that pulled Endangered Species Act protections from the animals.
