TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — About a third of Idaho hunters making written comments on the Idaho Fish and Game Commission’s draft elk management plan say they want more wolves killed to increase the elk population.

The Times-News reports that the commission on Thursday at its quarterly meeting received the first report on the 442 comments. About 150 of hunters making comments say they want increased measures to control wolf populations. Only 19 people making comments wanted no wolf control measures. The elk management plan was last updated in 1999.

Fish and Game officials hope to have a plan in place by early in 2014. Plan coordinator Craig White says wolves have cut elk populations in some areas, but some parts of the state have so many elk they are causing problems for farmers.
