Seven of the 12 wolf hunt areas are now closed for the remainder of 2013. Wolf hunt area one reached its harvestable quota of two wolves this past Sunday. Other wolf hunt areas already closed for the season include areas two, three, four, five, seven and 10.

Spokesman Al Langston says the wolf hunting season began October 1 and ends December 31, 2013 except for hunt area 12 south of Jackson, which opened October 15 and closes December 31. As with other trophy game species, wolves in these areas are managed under a mortality quota system. The hunting season in each specific wolf area will remain open until the quota for the area is reached, or until December 31, whichever comes first. All hunters must call the wolf hotline daily (800-264-1280) to ensure the quota for wolves in each specific area has not been reached.

Hunters harvesting wolves in areas where wolves are classified as trophy game area required to report the kill within 24 hours by calling the hotline at 800-264-1280. Within five days, they are required to present the skull and pelt to a game warden, biologist, or other personnel at a WGFD regional office for registration.

In all other areas of the state where wolves are designated as predatory animals, no license is required to harvest a wolf, and there are no closed seasons or bag limits. Anyone who takes a wolf in areas of the state where wolves are designated as predatory animals is required to report the kill to a district game warden, biologist or WGFD personnel at a regional office within 10 days after the date the wolf was killed.
