October 5, 2009 (Washington, DC) – The Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSF) was recently awarded Idaho Wolf Conservation Tag Number One, and the Idaho Sportsmen’s Caucus Advisory Council (ISCAC) was awarded tag number six for use during the 2009 inaugural gray wolf hunting season.

The commemorative wolf tags, series one through 10, are being released in the inaugural season to recognize wildlife management success and to help promote gray wolf management in Idaho. CSF and ISCAC will auction both tags with the proceeds from the auctions going to Idaho to help offset much of the cost associated with wolf management including population monitoring, law enforcement, public education, enhanced deer/elk/moose monitoring, and research, Idaho’s management of wolves including regulated hunting, to ensure that gray wolves remain a lasting legacy on Idaho’s landscape for future generations.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt a gray wolf in the beautiful state of Idaho,” said CSF President Jeff Crane. “These tags are invaluable to the Idaho wolf population and Idaho wildlife management programs and so it imperative that supporters of CSF step to the plate.”

The #1 tag is for sale during a live auction at the Richard Childress Whine Wheels and Wildlife event on October 14, 2009.

The #6 tag is for sale during the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses Annual meeting on October 29, 2009.

Registration for both events is filling up fast and both wolf tags are sure to be hot items for bidding during both live auctions, however, CSF is offering these once in a lifetime wolf hunts via off-sit bidding by contacting CSF Vice President of Development Gary Guinn at 202-543-6907 extension 24.
