Wyoming Game and Fish is looking to establish a 3 month hunting season with a quota of 52 wolves per year according to a draft released Friday. Game and Fish has scheduled meetings in Laramie, Cody, Sheridan, Casper, Pinedale, Green River, Jackson and lander starting later this month. For those of you that live outside the area, you can comment by mail.

My understanding is that quota is only for a small area around YNP and the rest of the state will be open season 24/7/365!

Yes, the greater yellowstone area will have a quota which is considered the trophy area. The rest of the state the wolves will be put on the predator list. Each year the trophy area will increase a certain amount of miles. Eventually, down the road, the whole state will be a trophy game area for wolves. Hopefully we can knock the population down enough we wont have to worry about them down the road too much.

birdhunter put it better. The quota and special hunt would be for the special area around Yellowstone. The rest of the state would be shoot on sight 24/7. There is an article in Saturdays Casper Star Tribune.
