RIVERTON, Wyo. — Game specialist Rene Schell of the Lander Game and Fish office said Wyoming’s wolf hunt is going along as planned, so far.

SCHELL said ………

Over the weekend, the number of wolf kills closed the first two trophy game hunt areas – 4 and 6 — because the harvest quotas had been met. She said a total of 23 of 52 wolves have now been harvested in the trophy game areas, which are located in the north-western corner of the state.

With 29 gray wolves left to kill, she said that makes the hunt numbers pretty even over all of the 12 trophy game areas. In the predator areas, five have been taken, but none in Fremont County.

Wyoming’s wolf hunt for the season closes on Dec. 31. It’s the first state wolf hunt since the 1990s. The gray wolf can only be taken during open seasons with legal firearms and archery equipment, during the day, a half an hour before sunrise to a half an hour after the sun sets.
