Montana trappers and hunters are doing a great job out there managing the state’s wolf population, as the total has now reached 122 wolves so far as of December 21st!  MT FWP doesn’t show how many trappers got wolves vs. hunters anymore on their website, but I have a feeling trappers are responsible for a big chunk of the harvests over the last six days the state’s wolf trapping season has been open.  Excellent work, sportsmen!!!!

Here is a breakdown from MT FWP, including the areas with quotas:
