Wolf hunt closes in one Idaho zone

Idaho’s wolf hunting season has closed in the Upper Snake zone in eastern Idaho, where hunters have now taken the limit of five wolves. It remains open in the remaining 11 zones, but two others are nearing their limits: In the McCall-Weiser Zone, with a limit of 15 wolves, 14 wolves have been taken, leaving one; and in the Palouse-Hells Canyon Zone, with a limit of five, two have been taken, leaving three. As of today, according to Idaho Fish & Game, 86 wolves have been killed statewide in the state’s first designated wolf hunting season; the statewide limit is 220.

The zones that are farthest from their limits, at this point, include the Lolo zone, where hunters have shot five wolves and the limit is 27; the Salmon zone, with a limit of 16, where hunters have taken two; and the Panhandle zone, where hunters have taken eight and the limit is 30. Fish & Game advises hunters to call (877) 872-3190 for the most up-to-date information on whether a zone is open or not; there’s also information online here.
