“I’m prepared to bid for the first ticket to shoot a wolf myself,” Gov. Butch Otter declared to cheers at a snowy sportsmen’s rally on the state Capitol steps just now. Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife-Idaho organized the event to rally for immediate wolf delisting from the endangered species act. As part of the event, Otter signed a proclamation declaring today to be “Idaho Sportsman’s Day."
Lots of folks in bright-orange caps, some carrying signs, are gathered out in the snowy weather for the rally. The group also has launched a petition drive.
