The wolf hunts are on the chopping blocks again as the judge has to decide if Idaho and Montana have decimated the wolf population enough to have another hunt this year.

U.S.Government subsidizes Ranchers for Wolf kills on Livestock

The Government has granted money to many western states in an effort to pay for the killing of livestock by wolves.
Hopefully the rancher will benefit from this program as the government is a little slow in making it's promises come true.

Wolf season is over in Idaho

April 1,2010 and wolf season is over in Idaho.There were approximately 185 wolves harvested in the first wolf season since way back when.
It is now a wait and see game on what will happen this year on wolf hunting in the west.But don't hesitate to buy a tag because if the wolf is placed back on the endangered list you will get your money back.
Good hunting all

A hunting controversy

One hundred eighty five wolves have been harvested in the Gem state,Idaho with thirty five left to fill the quota.
Only four days left in the hunting season on wolves,so doesn't look to good on that prognosis.
Also the zones in the north east portion off the state have to much snow to get to the wolf packs.Could mean an influx of wolves in the Idaho,Montana panhandle this year.

A hunting controversy

As of today there have been 183 wolves harvested in Idaho,with 37 left to harvest by the March 31,2010 dead line.
Seven hunting zones have been closed as the quota has been reached.

Friday, March 19, 2010

With only 20 days left in the wolf hunting season for Idaho,the hunters have harvested 179 wolves with 41 more left to harvest.
As I have stated before,that I didn't think Idaho would meet the 220 wolf quota the Idaho Fish and Game proposed to kill.
And most likely next year will be even worse as the wolf has found man to be a prediter and will hide when he smells or sees a human.

Wolves kill jogger in Alaska

A pack of wolves killed a substitute school teacher,while she was jogging in a small village in rural Alaska.
It seems the towns folk were walking their children to and from school,as the wolf pack has been hanging around the town for sometime.
The wolves had bitten the woman multiple times and then dragged her off the trail,leaving many tracks around her body.
There are an estimated 11000 wolves living in the state of Alaska.

Idaho has put out a new report on the wolf harvest,with 169 wolves harvested and a remaining 51 wolves left to harvest before march 31,2010..

Sunday, March 7, 2010

It is time for all Montanan's to buy their Hunting and Fishing licenses again.
There have been changes made to the taking of some species,mainly the Whitetailed Doe,which will not be harvested at all this year.
Montana had a bad winter kill a couple years ago along with the Wolf gaining new territory and taking their share of big game animals.
The Wolf has grown to a population of over 1000 animals in Idaho and Montana alone.
Wolves have also spread into Oregon and Washington.
The Mexican Government wants to introduce wolves there also,which means they will spread back into Arizona,New Mexico,California and Texas.
Keep this pace up and forget hunting Big Game all anymore,as the wolf will eventually wipe all game animals out,plus many Sheep and Cattle ranches.
Montana is having the problem of wolves killing cattle and the Fish and Wildlife cannot keep up with the problem wolf as they don't have enough Predation Officers to cover the vast expanses of the West.
By the time U.S.Fish and Wildlife Officers arrive the Wolf is 40 miles away in someone elses herd.

Nothing really happening as far as the wolf kill.
With only 28 days left in the season and 56 more wolves left to bag.
I don't see it happening anytime soon.
One may want to check in on these free Hog hunts to start the spring off.
I have found wild hog hunting to be enjoyable and the meat is real good if cured right.
There isn't as much fat on a wild hog,so the meat tastes better and is not as greasy if prepared right.

Two months left until the close of wolf season in Idaho.
There have been 146 wolves harvested with 74 wolves left to harvest,to fill the quota Idaho wants to fill.
There are 6 hunting zones that have filled their quota,but many more zones that have not.Zones along the Montana and Canada border are still open,but with the snow pack it makes hunting more difficult.
The best places to get a wolf will be where you find concentrations of Elk and Deer.
Also around livestock areas,which are by the foothills.

A Judge"s Order

Some feed back from an Alliance to save Wolves.
On September 9th, U.S. District Judge Molloy ruled that the wolf hunt in Montana and Idaho can proceed.
The reasoning was that Earthjustice did not show that irreparable harm would occur if hunting was allowed for one or two years, and that is the required legal basis for issuing an injunction.

The good news is that the Judge agrees with another argument that the federal delisting of wolves was likely illegal because it failed to include Wyoming and so constitutes a decision based on political-boundaries rather than science.
Earthjustice is expected to proceed through the legal system to follow-up on this aspect of the case next.
The bad news is that this suggests that all the feds need is to have Wyoming adopt Idaho or Montana’s program.
The good news is that this suggests that the feds would first have to re-list wolves as an endangered species in order to then go thru the process of legally de-listing them with the necessary changes needed to include Wyoming (but who knows how such things play out).
The wolves, however, have apparently heard the news and hunters are reporting they are not having much luck finding them (to date anyway).
As I have stated before,wolves are a lot harder to find when the snow gets deep.

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

The hunting take on wolves is at 175 with 75 left to harvest as of today.
The Lolo and Selway packs are the ones that need to be hunted but the snow pack has forced hunters to look elsewhere in Idaho.

Sunday, January 24, 2010

144 wolves have been harvested as of today with 76 left to harvest before the close of season.

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

The wolf hunt in Idaho has produced 143 wolves as of today with 77 more left to shoot before the end of season.
Most of the wolves have been shot in the lolo and salmon river drainage,which backs up to Montana.This is where the decline in big game animals is noticeable.

Use these guide lines when skinning and transporting your wolf home;

When skinning an animal use these common sense precautions:
Wear rubber (latex) gloves.

Minimize contact with animal fluids, brain and spinal tissues.
Wash hands and knives thoroughly after you field dress.

It's legal to harvest a radio-collared wolf, but the collar must be returned to Fish and Game. Please don't cut the collar belting.

Some wolves suffer from mange-a parasitic infestation caused by mites that results in the loss of fur.

Hunters should avoid skinning a mangy wolf.

Tag the animal and report the kill to Fish and Game.

Hunters can expect a field-dressed adult wolf pelt to weigh about 15 pounds.

An early autumn wolf pelt won't be quite as prime as a late season winter hide, but most will have thick and ample fur for tanning.

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

The wolf hunt in Idaho has produced 140 wolves harvested with only 80 left for the hunter to bag before season ends March 31,2010
With the snow it will get more difficult to bag a wolf unless they the wolf sttart killing rancher's livestock.

Friday, January 1, 2010

137 wolves have been harvested in Idaho and there are 83 more tags to be filled before the end of the season.
