New Wolf Regulations Proposed

WGF Logo

Following last week’s passage of the state’s new wolf management plan, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has drafted new regulations covering wolf management and wolf hunting.  Under the agreement, Wyoming will maintain at least 100 wolves and 10 breeding pairs outside of Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Reservation. The current Trophy Game Management Area in northwest Wyoming will extend about 50 miles to the south from its current location near the Wyoming/Idaho border. Wolves in this seasonal expansion area will be managed as trophy game from October 15th  to the last day of February. During the rest of the year, wolves in this seasonal expansion area will be designated as predators.  Public comments on the proposed regulations will be sought across the state during the next month, with a meeting slated in Jackson, April 10th.  The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will then consider the proposed regulations governing gray wolf management and gray wolf hunting in Wyoming at its April 25-26 meeting in Casper.  The draft regulations are available on the WGFD website.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
  • I’ll try anything to stay cool in the summer - July 24, 2014
    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties. Last weekend, I found myself sitting in jeans, boots, a long-sleeved shirt and a cowboy hat at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While […]
