A wolf was shot in the Marble Creekl area of the St. Joe River drainage Thursday during the opening day of wolf season in the Idaho Panhandle.
The area is home to the Marble Mountain wolf pack, which established itself about 10 years ago. Two other packs also have territory in that area, said Jim Hayden, regional wildlife manager for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
The wolf shot was a male. Hayden said the hunter, whose name was not released, is from Moscow, Idaho.
Thirty wolves can be taken in the Idaho Panhandle during the season, which runs through Dec. 31.
