    Wolves in Central WY!

    A wolf was photographed this morning near Lakeshore Drive by Alcova Reservoir. Check out K2radio.com to see the photos. Guys and Gals coming to WY, make sure you are prepared to take care of business in the predator zones here in WY. You never know what you may see this fall and we need to be sure we do our part as sportsman and conservationists to properly manage this predator wisely for the sake of the game we chase.

    ***No need for that any more in a big part of Wyoming where they are declared predators and you can shoot them all year with no license required.

    So if I understand correctly, if I happen to see a wolf while mule deer hunting in the Big Horns I can shoot it with no prior license or permit at all? Would I need to notify WY G&F?

    Cowboy, we don't have to in Wyoming (for the most part) That wolf at Alcova Reservoir is well in the "Shoot on sight, no license needed" zone. They have the same protection as a coyote...none! Wolves are protected in and about Yellowstone park and a few zones outside the park or "Trophy wolf areas" and there are quotas, maybe 25% of the state...if a wolf finds himself outside said areas (the 75%) they have zero protection and can and SHOULD be shot on sight, and not with a camera either.

    Wyoming has the right idea when it comes to these animals. The law has been in effect to shoot on sight but sightings like this show that the wolves will still spread even when they are in open season over most of the state.

    I know, but when it comes to wolves, I just get ticked off about the whole situation. It won't be long until we will have the same problem here in Colorado. US F&W gave is Coloradians a problem with wolves to the north & south also.

    Im glad WY stuck it out and got the predator and trophy zones passed so they can be killed legally anytime in most of the state!
