Robert Millage, a real estate agent from Kamiah, shot the first wolf in Idaho’s wolf hunt today, according to state officials. Millage, who bagged an adult female gray wolf from 25 yards away in the mountains near the Lochsa River, told the Associated Press, “I just wanted to beat my buddies to the punch, but I didn’t know I’d beaten everybody in the state.” Millage, 34, has hunted in Idaho for 22 years. “It was really an adrenaline rush to have those wolves all around me, howling and milling about after I fired the shot,” he said.
