    Wolves

    So from the little research I've done this what I've found out...
    I first have to buy a non-resident license for about $153...correct?
    Then I can buy the wolf license (anywhere between 1-5) for about $30 each...correct?

    Are there season dates? Or is it pretty much year round?

    I'm wanting to go up there this winter (December, January, or February) to go hunt some wolves... Would that be possible? Or would I have to wait till next year?

    Any info on where to go would be great too... Just looking at my options and seeing what I can do! Thanks guys

    You are correct on the licens, tags and prices. seasons start about 9/1 and some units close around march and some are open till end of june. I think all are closed in july and aug. a few units have quotas but most dont. All the info is on the IDFG web site. They are mostly in the mountains. Frank Church wilderness, Lolo zones, ect and they have moved into the pan handle now too.

    ok. sounds like I'm on the right track... Im guessing the best time to hunt them is during winter months right?

    They will probably be easier to find in alot of places in winter but alot of places will be snowed in and access will be more difficult. I think alot of the wolves killed are by guys that run into them while they are deer or elk hunting.

    Ok sweet. We'll hopefully we can get up there maybe during November and kill us a few... I'm sure the Idahoans won't mind if we get a few out of their way I wanna kill one with my bow but I think it would kill me first haha

    Nothing wrong with killing 1 with your bow but I would carry a good revolver for backup!

    Wolves have been in the Panhandle for years, it's far beyond "moved into" at this point, elk herd is down over 60% in the last 5 years and that's being conservative, the Panhandle is actually one of the zones where you can hunt wolves year round on private land.

    My guess is we are a few years out from year round seasons and unlimited (or very high) tag quotas. IDFG is starting to realize that they are going to have to be pretty aggressive to keep #s where they want them.

    Winter time is your best chance. I know quite a few guys who have had success finding large herds of wintering elk and watching them, if they are acting "weird" good chance they are trying to not become dinner that night. Several places in Eastern Idaho that are good for this (think border of Yellowstone) there are also several winter herds within a couple hours of Boise that guys are consistently killing wolves off of now.

    Come up here and get one, we have plenty!

    Looks like the first two weeks of December will give me a chance to wolf hunt. I plan to hunt around Yellowstone, really cant go sooner. This will be a first so any help will be appreciated. Maybe get in some snowmobiling also.
