POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Park County leads Wyoming in the number of hunting licenses sold for next month's wolf hunt.

The Associated Press reports sales of the licenses began Friday.

Eric Keszler is spokesman for the game department. He says that as of 9 a.m. Monday, 834 wolf licenses had been sold statewide. Park County hunters had purchased 157 licenses. Teton and Fremont and Sublette counties followed with 141, 136 and 119, respectively. Ten non-residents also had purchased wolf licenses.

Licenses cost $18 for Wyoming residents and $180 for non-residents. Although there's no limit on the number of licenses that may be sold, hunting will close after quotas are reached in specific areas.

Wolves are classified as unprotected predators in most of the state.
