Montana Commission Approves Wolf Trapping

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana wildlife commissioners have approved new wolf hunting rules that will allow trappers to each kill up to three of the predators.

The new rules approved Thursday more closely resemble Idaho’s, following a season where hunters failed to reach the quota of 220 wolves.

Montana wildlife managers will now allow some trapping, lift most quotas and expand the length of the season. Fish, Wildlife and Parks also plans to seek legislative approval for a further expansion, including allowing hunters to use electronic calls.

The plan has generated tremendous public response, particularly by those weighing in on trapping.

Snaring would not be allowed under the new rules.

Bow and rifle hunters would be restricted to one wolf, a restriction written in state law.
