Wolf Hunt Quotas Not Being Reached

The trophy season for wolves ends in just under two weeks, and at this time, quotas have not been filled in four areas in and around Jackson Hole.  Wyoming Game and Fish Biologist Ken Mills says it is hard to tell just why there has been so little activity since the beginning of November, but he admits only about half of the available licenseswere sold this year.  He says he suspects that hunters questioned the opportunities that the lower quotas this year offered.  Still, Mills says hunters are out there but seem not to be able to complete the quotas in the remaining hunt areas.  He suggests an additional possibility that the wolf hunt has been less than successful lately is that the animals are becoming more wary of humans.   Currently, 21 of the quota of 26 trophy wolves have been killed with only 26 having been taken as predators elsewhere in the state – significantly below the 43 killed during last year’s trophy hunt.
