Montana to update wolf hunt numbers


The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission will meet tomorrow, to review the wolf hunting and trapping seasons in Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 3 as required by the decision the commission made on wolf regulations during its August meeting. The commission established harvest thresholds in each of the agency’s administrative regions, which total 450 statewide.

If the harvest meets any of these thresholds, the commission will convene to revisit the regulations and potentially adjust the season structure.


As wolf harvesting in Region 3, which is generally comprised of southwest Montana outside Yellowstone National Park, nears its threshold, the commission will discuss its potential next steps, and may act on some of them at this meeting.

The Region 3 threshold is 82 wolves. As of Wednesday morning, the harvest for Region 3 so far is 74 wolves.
