BOISE, Idaho. - The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has wolf tags for sale.

Outlets that sell Idaho hunting licenses reported brisk wolf tag business, as shooters across the state prepare for the chance to bag up to 220 of the predators starting September 1.

At Cabela's Inc. in Boise, hunters lined up at the customer service counter to get first crack at licenses that began selling at 10 a.m.

Last week, the state set a quota allowing hunters to kill up to 220 wolves, about one-quarter of the state's population, but it's still unclear if hunters will actually get a chance to hunt the predators.

Environmentalists countered with a motion in federal court in Montana asking a judge to put a stop the public hunts in Idaho and Montana.

A federal judge has agreed to host a last-minute hearing on the request from environmental and animal rights groups to stop the upcoming wolf hunts in the Northern Rockies. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy says he'll host a three-hour hearing Aug. 31 to hear arguments in the case.

Idaho is selling wolf tags for $11.50 for residents and $186 for nonresidents. The permits are available at agency office across the state or on its web site. Refunds may be issued of the hunting season is nixed.

Three-hundred wolves in Wyoming remain under federal protection because of a state law there considered hostile to wolves.
