Another Wolf Hunt Area Closes

wolf hunt

Four of the twelve hunt areas in Wyoming’s Trophy Management Area for the hunting of wolves have been closed now after their quotas have been met or exceeded.  The most recent area is area two in the Sunlight Basin northeast of Yellowstone National Park where five wolves have been taken.  The quota was to have been four, but Game and Fish Spokesman Alan Dubberly says the way reporting of kills is done, such an incident can easily happen.  Dubberly says the way the quota system is set up for harvesting in the trophy management area, hunters are required to call in their harvest within 24 hours, and there’s a possibility that if there are two hunters in the field and there is one wolf left to fill the quota there, both might harvest them in the same 24-hour period.  Dubberly adds that when the quotas were set this summer, incidents like this were taken into consideration and the state will continue to have a healthy wolf population in the trophy management area. The other areas that have been closed are area five in the Wind River Range west of the Wind River Reservation where three wolves have been harvested, area seven along the Wyoming/ Idaho state line where there were no wolves allotted and area ten southeast of Jackson where only one wolf was allotted in the quota.  Altogether, 13 of the 26 wolves set this year as the quota for wolves in the Trophy Game Management Area have been killed.
