Wolf Hunting Tags on Sale in Idaho


BOISE, Idaho (AP) – Hunters aiming to bag a gray wolf this year can once again buy a tag from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

The state wildlife agency started selling tags for $11.50 Idaho residents Thursday, one day after the predators were taken off the endangered species list.

Out-of-state hunters will have to shell out $186 for a wolf permit.

The decision to delist puts wolves under state management, and Idaho officials are now setting quotas and rules for this season’s wolf hunt.

Idaho hunters took the backcountry two years ago to hunt wolves after the predators were delisted the first time. Hunters killed 188 wolves during that first public hunt, short of the Idaho state limit of 220.

Officials in Montana are also gearing up for a wolf hunt this fall and proposing a quota of 220.
