Idaho Wolf Hunt

Montana is planning a wolf hunt in the fall and now Idaho may as well.

Idaho wildlife policy makers could set wolf hunt quotas by August after Congress last month directed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to delist the predators.

There are currently an estimated 705 wolves in Idaho in about 87 packs, but Idaho Department of Fish and Game plans to update that information this month at a meeting in Lewiston.

After that, agency biologists will present options for a fall wolf hunt in July, with Fish and Game Commission members potentially adopting a harvest strategy at their August meeting.

If the 2009 season is a guide, hunting wolves would likely start in September, though exactly when tags go on sale is uncertain.

That year, hunters killed 188 wolves, just short of the 220 limit.
