On July 28, 2011, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission set wolf hunting and trapping seasons based on Idaho Fish and Game proposals and public input.
The primary objective is to use hunting and trapping as a means to reduce the statewide wolf population to a level that is sustainable, meets federal recovery goals, and reduces conflicts statewide.
Specific proposals seek to maximize wolf harvest opportunities where wolf conflicts are the greatest.
Mandatory harvest reporting provides valuable information for ongoing monitoring and future season adjustments.
Idaho's Clearwater Basin will have a 10-month wolf hunting season.
