Trophy game status means hunting is regulated and a permit is required. But south of the highway, wolves are deemed predators so those regulations don't apply.</p> Tue, 02 Oct 2012 18:51:26 +0000 Rebecca Huntington 30891 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Worries about wolf kills Wyoming's Wolf Hunt Begins http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/wyomings-wolf-hunt-begins <p>Wyoming’s first regulated wolf hunt begins today.&nbsp;</p><p>As of Friday, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department sold over 22 hundred wolf licenses.&nbsp; Park County led the sales.&nbsp; Park County Commissioner Joe Tilden told the Big Horn Radio Network is pleased that the hunt is finally moving forward.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 01 Oct 2012 15:15:29 +0000 Bob Beck 30830 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Wyoming's Wolf Hunt Begins
