Bidders for special wolf tags are being sought back East and on the Net

Those commemorative wolf tags that Fish & Game has authorized to be auctioned off to the highest bidders won't be offered just to Idahoans - one of the six auctions by nonprofit groups, which will be for Tag No. 1, will take place in North Carolina, and three will be on the Internet, including one on eBay. The Mule Deer Foundation will have the first auction Sept. 30, with sealed Internet bids, to sell tags nos. 3 and 8. A day later, Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife will hold an auction for tags nos. 4 and 10. Then, on Oct. 3, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation will hold a live auction in Mackay for tags nos. 5 and 9.

On Oct. 15, the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation will put tag No. 1 up for bid in a live auction at the "Wine, Wheels and Wildlife" event in Lexington, N.C.; and Nov. 15, the Safari Club International, Treasure Valley Chapter, will have tags nos. 2 and 7 up for bid on eBay. The commemorative tags are being called "Wolf Conservation Tags," because proceeds go to wolf conservation and management activities. Because a hunter can have only one wolf tag per calendar year, those who've already purchased a regular tag will be allowed to turn it in if they secure one of the special tags. Bidders also must hold 2009 Idaho hunting licenses.
