The harvest was 230 wolves for this year’s wolf hunt, only five more than last year when the rules were more restrictive . . .
Hunters and trappers in Montana killed 230 wolves during the recently concluded wolf season.
That’s only five more wolves than the prior year’s wolf harvest despite the lifting of quotas on the animals across most of the state and a higher bag limit for individual hunters.
Hunters took 144 wolves during a season that started in September and ended Saturday. Trappers took 86 wolves.
