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.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]

  • Show me a line, I’ll show you a wind knot - August 26, 2014
    My fly line tippets never last me very long. Early in the season, I’ll put a new wind knot in a tippet on every cast. I’ve actually gotten two knots on a single cast before. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ve done it. I’ve gotten wind knots in my leader, too, and […]
  • I’ll take a full-size truck, please - August 25, 2014
    I mentioned last week that I’ve had the opportunity for an extended test drive of a Nissan Titan, and I compared it to the smaller Nissan Frontier. The Frontier’s smaller size gives it a little better ability to get through tight spots and over rough roads, but I still like a full-size truck for hunting […]
