Montana Wolf Hunt Count At 44

wolf hunting, wolf hunt, hunting wolves, montana wolfTwo weeks into the season and it appears Montana hunters are doing the job on reducing the wolf population in Big Sky country. According to the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, during the Montana wolf hunt, 44 wolves have been taken two weeks into the season, but there's still work to be done in several areas.

Along the entire western edge of the state, there's a harvest quota of 130 wolves for units 100, 101, 121, 200, 210, and 250. Only 16 wolves have been taken so far.

The general rifle season started Oct. 22 and runs until December 31st.

Taken Oct. 28 with bow and arrow at 40 yards in Pine City, N.Y.

Rick and Luke Jester killed this coyote at five yards when they were turkey hunting in southwest Georgia.
I called this big coyote in after 40 minutes of electronic distress calling. Saw him approach from 500 yards out till he was 50 yards from where I was set up. Shot the coyote with a 20-gauge deer slug from my slug rifle. The location was out near Victoria, Ill., and the date was Feb. 9, 2013.
