JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming wildlife officials say hunters have not killed any wolves since the legal wolf hunt began.

The Jackson Hole and News Guide reports (https://bit.ly/2psKqiD ) Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials say they have not received a report of a hunter-killed wolf as of Friday.

The first legal wolf hunt in the state in more than two years began on Tuesday. Successful wolf hunters have 10 days to report their kills.

Sporting goods store owner and hunting guide Robb Wiley says bad weather may be a factor for the slow start.

When wolves were taken off the endangered species list five years ago, only 23 of the 2,153 hunters that purchased the license killed a wolf.
