Hunters Fill Wolf Tags Quickly

Written by on October 4, 2017

Wolf hunting season is underway, and hunters wasted no time in filling their tags.
According to an article in the Jackson Hole News and Guide, a dozen wolves were legally harvested in the first 40 hours of the hunting season that began Sunday – that’s over a quarter of the total wolves that can be killed in the state’s managed hunt area during the three-month long hunting season.
Wyoming Game and Fish Department carnivore manager Ken Mills attributed the considerable success to the opener falling on a weekend, winter weather pushing lots of sportsmen into the field, and also a species that may temporarily have lost its fear of mankind.
Mills says it has been three years since the last hunting season, which means there is almost a whole new generation of wolves that has no experience with human hunters.
