Idaho may consider extending wolf hunt season

Lewiston, Idaho (AP) – Idaho wildlife officials are thinking
about extending the wolf hunting season in certain hunting zones
across the state.

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is scheduled to meet in Coeur
d’Alene later this week, and a proposal to extend the season in
certain areas may be on the agenda.

Idaho Fish and Game Deputy Director Jim Unsworth tells the
Lewiston Tribune there may be one or two units where more time may
be needed for hunters to thin specific wolf populations.

The season is scheduled to end Dec. 31.

Through last week, hunters had killed 100 wolves since hunting
opened this fall. That total is less than half the quota of 220
wolves set by the state for the season.
