Wolf harvest in Region 3 currently at 76 of 82 wolf threshold

HELENA – During its meeting Friday, the Fish and Wildlife Commission voted to close the wolf trapping and hunting seasons in Region 3 when the harvest threshold of 82 wolves is met. As of Friday afternoon, 76 wolves have been killed in Region 3.

The commission established harvest thresholds in each of FWP’s administrative regions, which total 450 statewide. If harvest meets any of these thresholds, the commission convenes to revisit the regulations and potentially adjust the season structure.

Those interested in up-to-date information on the status of Montana’s wolf harvest can view FWP’s wolf dashboard, which  shows the number of wolves harvested by region and wolf management unit (WMU). The dashboard is updated multiple times per day.
