BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Montana wildlife officials have delayed a decision on a wolf management stamp after the proposal ran into resistance from hunters.

The $20 stamps would be considered donations by non-hunters to help fund management of the animals.

Montana Fish, Wildilfe and Parks announced Thursday that the stamps won’t be offered this year.

Hunters said during public hearings on the proposal that they worried the stamps would allow non-hunters to demand that wildlife officials manage game differently. Others said they supported the stamps.

A final determination had been due by the end of the month.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks Director Jeff Hagener plans to convene a group of interested parties this fall for a day-long discussion on the issue.
