Montana FWP Commission Approves 2012-2013 Wolf Hunt Season Proposal

Montana wildlife commissioners have approved new wolf hunting rules today that will allow trappers to each kill up to three wolves.

After a season where hunters failed to reach the quota of 220 wolves, the newly approved rules more closely resemble those in Idaho. The plan has generated an enormous amount of public response, particularly by those weighing in on trapping.

Montana wildlife managers will now allow some trapping, lift most quotas and expand the length of the season. Fish, Wildlife and Parks also plans to seek legislative approval for a further expansion, including allowing hunters to use electronic calls. Snaring would not be allowed under the new rules. Bow and rifle hunters would be restricted to one wolf.
