With the Sept. 1 opening of the wolf hunting season in many of western Wyoming’s trophy wolf hunt areas, the quota of four wolves has already been reached in the Clarks Fork hunt area, which is now closed to further wolf harvest, according to the Wyoming Game & Fish Department.
One wolf (of the quota of six) has also been taken in the North Fork hunt area, while one of the two-wolf quota has been taken from the Rim hunt area. The combined Fish Creek, Crystal Creek and Green River hunt areas of the Upper Green/Union Pass have a quota of seven wolves, of which there has been one reported harvest.
Of the total quota of 35 wolves available for legal harvest in the state’s wolf trophy zone, seven wolves have been killed by hunters as of Friday, Sept. 13. An additional 17 wolves have been killed so far this year in the remainder of Wyoming, where wolves are classified as predators.
