Montana and Idaho
Wolf Action Alert!
Speak out about the Montana and Idaho wolf hunting seasons!
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has changed the hunting regulations in 2012 to have NO QUOTAS and allow public trapping throughout Montana. The Commission will review quotas and trapping seasons on December 3rd and they need to hear from advocates for wolves that these seasons are too aggressive! Click here for the Montana FWP website wolf page.
For the second year, Idaho has a wolf hunting season with NO QUOTAS and trapping is once again allowed.
While the Western Wolf Coalition does not embrace wolf hunting, we recognize that the public hunting of wolves will be a regular component of wolf management. It is important to voice your support for wolves, and to remind the Departments and Commissioners to manage wolves conservatively, using the best available science.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.
Contact the Idaho Department of Fish & Game
Contact the Idaho Department of Fish & Game Commissioners directly
Contact Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
Contact Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commissioners directly

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho wildlife managers will propose a wolf hunt without quotas in much of the state, but hunters so far have purchased only a fraction of the tags needed to kill the rangy predators, compared with the first hunt in 2009.
