The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has started selling wolf tags – $11.50 for resident hunters and $186 for nonresidents, vendor fees included.
Tags are available at license vendors and Fish and Game offices in Idaho. A valid 2011 Idaho hunting license is required to buy a tag.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service earlier today published the rule that removed wolves in Idaho from the endangered species list. The rule took effect upon publishing.
Gray wolves are now under state management and considered a big game animal.
The Idaho Fish and Game Commission will set seasons, rules and limits later in the summer, according to the news release.
