Montana hunters have killed 120 wolves across the state. In Region 1, about 75 percent of the wolf quota has been met. A total of 54 wolves have been taken of the quota of 71 for the Region.
Region 1 Wildlife Manager Jim Williams points out that good wolf hunting opportunity remains.
“Hunters may not realize that the Thompson River area (south of Highway 2) is in Wolf Management Unit (WMU) 121 along with the Lower Clark Fork. This is a good, accessible area for wolf hunting, and there are still 8 wolves left in the quota for that district.”
Far northwest there are six wolves left in WMU 100, which includes the Yaak River valley, and the Purcell Mountains north of Libby. In WMU 110 (North Fork Flathead) there is only one wolf left in the quota.
WMU 101 will close Thursday at sunset because the quota of 19 wolves was met.
Remember hunters – a wolf harvest must be reported within 12 hours of harvest by calling 877-397-9453, or 1-877-FWP-WILD. Check the FWP website for quota updates or call 1-800-385-7826.
