Colville Tribal hunters may now hunt wolves year-round on tribal grounds. The rule change, posted Friday, also removed a three-wolf season limit.
Wolf hunting was scheduled to end on the north half of the reservation at the end of February. The north half is comprised of tribal, state and federal land.
Wolf hunting is not allowed in Washington however, Tribes aren’t bound by state and federal rules and can hunt wolves under rules set by their tribal wildlife officials.
The Colville Tribe first allowed wolf hunting in 2012.
