Wolf Hunting Discussed

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The State Wildlife Commissioners are taking public comment on a proposal to expand the hunting season for wolves.

The prior season hunters and trappers were allowed to take up to three wolves. The tentative proposal will not only extend months for hunters and trappers, but it will increase the wolf limit to five. "It's all an attempt to be more affective in taking more wolves and certainly the longer the season you would expect the more wolves that would be taken.
So we are going to try additional wolves for individuals and a little bit longer season and see if that results in more harvest," FWP Spokesperson; Ron Aasheim said.

The public is allowed to share their thoughts on the plan by mailing a letter to the Helena Fish Wildlife and Parks Office.
