Last years Montana wolf hunt was not a success and Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks has raised the total quota of wolves that need to be culled and the numbers of wolves each hunter/trapper is able to take. This year persons may take 3 wolves but only 1 may be taken by gun/arrow. Trapping will be allowed this year even over protests by activist groups to try to cull the ever increasing numbers of wolves. All trappers must have a trapping class provided free by Montana FWP. State biologist have finally amitted that elk and deer populations are down in a lot of areas and wolves are believed to be the leading factor in this. Hunter success has dropped below 25% in most areas because of the low numbers of elk and deer. Come hunt some wolves, you can only do it legally in 3 of the lower 48 states. If you come elk hunting buy a wolf tag, you may get lucky! Wolf tags MUST be purchased 5 days prior to your hunt.
My numbers may not be accurate, see Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks website http://fwp.mt.gov/ for accurate imformation, including license fees, requirements and open and closed units.
