The Idaho Fish and Game Commission will consider wolf hunting and trapping seasons during the July 27 and 28 meeting in Salmon.

A public hearing will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, at the Idaho Fish and Game regional office in Salmon.

Proposed wolf seasons would use hunting and trapping to reduce the population to a level that is sustainable, meets federal recovery goals and reduces conflict levels statewide. Fish and Game plans to release the proposal for public review on the Fish and Game website later in the week of July 4. A news conference to discuss the proposal will be announced later in the week.

Other agenda items include:

  • Rules for all game animals and protected wildlife.
  • Nonresident deer and elk tag quotas and nonresident deer and elk tag outfitter set-asides.
  • Season setting for sandhill cranes and for fall Chinook salmon.
  • Release of bighorn sheep tags for auction and lottery.
  • Expenditure of Animal Damage Control funds.
  • Legislative proposals and land acquisitions.
  • A briefing on migratory game birds and sage-grouse.

A detailed agenda will be posted on the Fish and Game website when it becomes available.
