Montana FWP meets Feb. 20 to set details of wolf hunting season

Despite all the awful decisions at a general level made by the federal government and Idaho, Wyoming and Montana regarding their management of wolves after delisting, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is meeting in Helena on Feb . 20 to set the details of the hunting seasons, including wolves.

The FWP Commission could (I stress “could”) come up with a regulation that provides for a sustainable wolf population in Montana. Not a big decrease in wolf numbers.

Idaho Fish and Game commission will meet in early March to do the same.
