JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The deadline is approaching for people to offer their thoughts about the next wolf-hunting season in northwest Wyoming.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department proposes to set a limit of 43 wolves for this fall’s third annual wolf-hunting season in the area surrounding Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.

That’s 17 more wolves than last year’s limit.

Comments on this year’s hunting season can be submitted through the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website. Friday is the deadline to do so.

Wolves may be shot on sight in most of Wyoming. In northwest Wyoming, they’re classified as trophy game animals subject to regulated hunting during designated hunting seasons.



The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1pnPeSq ) Wyoming’s wolf population is holding steady at around 300 wolves.
