Idaho Fish and Game Commission extends wolf hunting, trapping seasons

From the Idaho Mountain Express:

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission formally expanded wolf hunting and trapping opportunities across the state via conference call on Thursday, opening up year-round wolf hunting in a majority of Idaho’s game units and approving 11-month hunting seasons in others.

The ruling, primarily enacted to decrease wolf predation on livestock and elk herds, followed the commission’s Jan. 23 vote to raise Idaho’s wolf hunting and trapping tag limit from five to 15 wolves per person.
