Idaho has put together new proposals for extending the season on wolves. This is prompted by new population modeling that shows a marked increase in the number of wolves in Idaho. The new model shows potential numbers of wolves stand at 1,541. This number is far above the agreed upon numbers Idaho must carry to conform with agreements i.e. ESA. The state legislature has put forth a new bill aiming at a year round hunting season in SW Idaho. I don't agree with the legislature getting involved in Fish and Game manners. Fish and game has now proposed there own extended seasons, for ALL areas of Idaho. IF YOU CAN TAKE A MOMENT TO FILL THIS OUT! The anti's are pushing hard to squash these proposals. Please take a moment and Thanks.

Done.

In the comment section I said “I support any and all expansions of season dates or method of take for the control of wolves in Idaho.”

My heroes! Thanks!

From: TrapperKayak

Done. Comments stated that: Actual management should attempt to attain ESA management goals for the number of breeding pairs listed.

As an avid Idaho hunter I am here with you!! Idfg did raid the limit to 15 this year but the proposed aug1-june30 would surely open windows!! Thanks for the post!!! Save our elk!!

Needed one more option - 24/7/365, no limits, no restrictions on method of take.

Done, thanks for posting

From: Glunt@work

Done. Commented that statewide, 24/7, 365 day season, no limits should be in place until numbers approach the required population numbers.

From: SmokedTrout
06-Feb-20
Done, and thanks for the link. Would like to read more about their new population estimates as I am fairly certain there are a lot more wolves in Montana than the current guestimates.

From: tkjwonta
06-Feb-20
Done. Hopefully some added hunting/trapping opportunities can help get numbers back in check.

From: Brotsky
06-Feb-20
Done my comments: "I support expanded season dates and all methods of take for all wolf seasons."

From: BullBuster

On it

06-Feb-20
Done. My comments: “Idaho should adopt Wyoming’s policy of wolf hunting 24/7/365, with the exception of areas around Yellowstone Nat’l Park. Those areas should be designated Trophy Areas, which would ensure population levels which would allow wolves to be removed from the Endangered Species List.” God Bless Wyoming!

From: Glunt@work

1500+?

Makes me wonder if Wyoming's guess of 300 is low.

Thanks again guys, you're awesome. Here is an article on how they are counting wolves to derive these numbers.

Got it.

The Wolfie millionaires in Ketchum are throwing a fit. Way to many wolves and they have been wreaking havoc in the last few heavy winters.

Got my tags already. I may to a spring bear and wolf hunt in my elk area. Like paying down for a good elk hunt.

Idaho is great. Plenty places to pack in or go in by boat. No many hunters most years at all.

As I spoke earlier of it , NR Prices in ID just got raised. Need $ to prepare for wolf reductions.

Thank you all so much for participating, yesterday was the final day to submit. For those concerned with Colorado, please remember to be vocal in that state, remember that populations rise quickly and that to control the species, multiple tags, trapping, and long seasons HAVE to be administered.

Fish and Game getting even more aggressive about wolf management. 15 wolf tags...

They will take them down to the agreed #s.

Wolf makes nice table top vover for knife and knapped arrow head collection or winter jacket fringe. Lots a of good primitive uses for wolf pelts/hides.
