Wolf season closes in McCall zone

Idaho Fish & Game says the wolf hunting season is closed as of today in the McCall-Weiser zone, where the limit of 15 wolves was reached. It’s the second of 12 zones in the state in which the wolf hunt has closed; the first was the Upper Snake zone, which closed Nov. 2 when its limit was reached. As of today, a total of 97 wolves have been killed during the unprecedented wolf-hunting season; the statewide limit is 220, but it’s divided into specific limits by zone. Fish & Game advises hunters to call to check whether a zone remains open, (877) 872-3190.  In the Lolo zone, only five of the limit of 27 wolves have been killed; just two have been shot in the Salmon zone, with a limit of 16; and eight have been taken in the Panhandle zone, where the limit is 30.
