    This pages offers links to the draft regulations.

    In the “draft” trophy game regulations, chpt 21, the focus is, as we might expect, killing wolves.

    Of interest also is chpt. 28, which addresses monetary compensation out of the hunter/angler funded G&F Fund to landowners for big game and trophy game depredation on livestock. Note especially the formula for compensation of wolf kills on domestic sheep, which is number of animals confirmed as wolf kills TIMES 7.

    What deal.

    Should we have expected anything less from the state of Wyoming?
