Idaho Fish and Fame approves year-round wolf hunts


The Idaho Fish and Game Commission approved nine proposals to extend wolf hunting and trapping season following a two-week public comment period, the Idaho Statesman reports.

The move allows wolf hunting from Aug. 1 to June 30 in most of the state, and year-round hunting in southwest and south-central Idaho.

In total, the commission approved seven hunting proposals and two trapping proposals after receiving more than 27,000 comments during the public comment period.
