Grey Wolf Hunting Season Close to Ending in Wyoming

The controversial trophy hunt for grey wolves in northwestern Wyoming is approaching its last month.

Wyoming Game and Fish closed the Fish Creek Wolf Management Unit north of Jackson to hunting on Saturday. Game and Fish will close all wolf management areas to hunting on Dec. 31.

Eric Keszler, an information officer with Wyoming Game and Fish, says the state has carefully regulated its wolf hunt.

What we’re seeing is wolf harvests distributed pretty evenly across the trophy game area,” Keszler said. “There hasn’t been a big wolf slaughter, like some people are concerned about – it’s just been a really well-regulated, well-run hunt.”

Opponents say Wyoming violated the Federal Endangered Species Act by removing wolf protections earlier this fall.

36 wolves have been killed in Wyoming since the state’s wolf season opened in October. The statewide quota is set at 52 wolves.

Hunting information can be found at the Wyoming Game and Fish website.
