Idaho Wolf Tags Selling Slowly
Idaho’s hunters aren’t exactly howling for wolf tags this season. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game sold 4,717 resident tags and 175 nonresident tags through Tuesday. Before the state’s 2009-10 hunt, 4,000 tags sold on the first day and more than 30,000 were sold in total. Hunters killed 188 wolves during the first public hunt. Tracy Crisp, co-owner of West Addison Sportsmen Supply and Surplus in Twin Falls, says the hype of the wolf hunt has greatly toned down, but some hunters are picking up wolf tags when they get elk or deer tags. The state’s wolf hunting season opens August 30th.
