The ranch will provide a limited number of access permits.

Youth hunters must be accompanied by an adult during the entire hunt.

Wolf Hunt Closed in Eastern Idaho Zone

IdahoFish-Game

The wolf season has closed as of Monday, November 2, in the Upper Snake wolf zone in eastern Idaho, where the limit of five wolves has been reached.

The zone borders Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park where wolves are still protected under the Endangered Species Act. The closure affects only big game management units 60, 60A, 61, 62, 62A, 64, 65 and 67. Elsewhere in the state the wolf seasons remain open, including the portions of the Southern Mountains and the South Idaho wolf zones that fall within the Upper Snake Region.

Wolf seasons remain open in Upper Snake Region big game management units 50, 51, 58, 59, 59A, and in units 63, 63A, 66 and 69.

Wolf hunters are reminded to check the harvest limit in the wolf hunting zones they intend to hunt. Idaho Department of Fish and Game set wolf harvest limits by 12 zones. The season closes in each zone when the limit for that zone is reached, or when the statewide limit of 220 wolves is reached.

Two other zones also are approaching the limits as of November 2.

In the McCall-Weiser Zone, with a limit of 15 wolves, 14 wolves have been taken, leaving one.

In the Palouse-Hells Canyon Zone, with a limit of five, two have been taken, leaving three.

The statewide harvest as of November 2 is 86 wolves.

Some other zones are not yet approaching the limits. In the Lolo zone, with a limit of 27, hunters have taken five wolves; in the Salmon zone, with a limit of 16, hunters have taken two; and in the Panhandle zone, with a limit of 30, they have taken eight.

To find out whether a zone is open, call 877-872-3190. The Fish and Game wolf harvest Web page is updated less frequently, but provides a zone map and other useful information: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/cms/hunt/wolf/quota.cfm.

Hunters Urged to File Harvest Reports Early

IdahoFish-Game

Many general deer seasons ended October 31, and hunters can save themselves some hassle and save Fish and Game expenses by filing mandatory harvest reports early.

All deer, elk and antelope hunters must complete and submit a report for each tag issued within 10 days of harvest or within 10 days of the close of the season for which their tag was valid.

The easiest way is to submit the harvest report card online at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov, and click on the red “Harvest Reports” logo below the photo. Or go to https://www.idaho-hunt.com and use your hunting license or tag number and the first four letters of your last name.

Submitting online is the surest way to have hunt information included and the only way to get confirmation that the report was received.

Reports also may be mailed to: Idaho Fish and Game, Hunter Harvest Reports, P.O. Box 70007, Boise, ID 83707-0107 or called in toll-free at 1-877-268-9365 or faxed to 775-423-0799.
