VIA – Wolves of the Rockies~
Bad News for Yellowstone and Montana Wolves. In what can only described as a superficial gesture….. Montana Fish & Wildlife offer a pathetic compromise on the upcoming 2013 – 14 wolf trapping & hunting season.
Some of the changes offered:
Archery will be one week from 7 September to 14 September.
Rifle season is from 15 September 2013 to 15 March 2014. The have reduced hunting season for wolves by 16 days.
Trapping season remains the same from 15 Dec 2013 till 28 February 2014 with a 48 hour trap check requirement and a MT or Idaho wolf trapping course certification.
No change in bag limit of five wolves in any combination except in YS WMU 313 & 316. WMU quota of 2.
Gardiner Basin was absorbed into WMU 313. (This is has been vetted)
We will continue to analyze this proposal and provide additional information as it presents itself.
