A total of six wolves have been shot by hunters in Wyoming’s trophy game area since the hunt began October first.  Two of the six wolves were taken in hunt areas within Jackson Hole. That has led to the closure of one hunt area southeast of Jackson.  Altogether, 26 wolves have been set as the maximum quota for this year’s hunt – half of the number set last year. Hunters harvesting wolves in areas where wolves are classified as Trophy Game Animals are required to report the kill within 24 hours by calling the wolf hotline. Within five days, they are required to present the skull and pelt to a game warden, biologist, or other personnel at a Game and Fish regional office for registration.
