I have been meaning for some time now to get this information available for readers. I apologize that it has taken so long.
The Outdoorsman, a print publication out of Idaho and published and edited by George Dovel, is one of the most informative publications available to outdoor sportsmen today. Granted much of the material focuses on Idaho and the surrounding areas of Montana and Wyoming, much of what you can find in this magazine can and does apply to many other areas as well.
In the January, February, March, 2008, Bulletin Number 26 of the Outdoorsman, Dovel includes a nine-page information-packed article entitled, “What They Didn’t Tell You About Wolf Recovery”. If you would like a comprehensive read about facts and information not made public before about the efforts of recovering the gray wolf in the Western Rockies, I have made this portion of the Outdoorsman available to you in a pdf format. George Dovel has been kind enough to grant me permission to make this available to readers. Read more

Idaho is planning a wolf hunt in the fall of 2008. Whether that actually happens remains to be seen as no less than 12 environmental/animal rights groups have filed suit to reverse the decision earlier this year that took the gray wolf in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming off the endangered species list. Couple that with some of the same groups seeking a court injunction to stop all killing and hunting of the wolf immediately, it is probably doubtful there will be a fall hunt.
Regardless of what I think, there are some fuzzy math issues involving the Idaho Fish and Game Department that I can’t quite figure out. For those who don’t know, the IDFG is seeking public comment on rules and regulations concerning a proposed fall wolf hunt. Go to their website and you can register a comment. Preceding the comment box, this is the information IDFG has for you to read. Read more
