    COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - Members of the North Idaho Wolf Alliance say they'll protest the state's first public wolf hunt since the animals were delisted by gathering at the Idaho Fish and Game office on Friday. Meanwhile, hunters who favor the wolf hunt say they'll gather to show their support for the agency. The season is scheduled to start September 1 in some regions, but environmentalists have filed a motion in federal court asking a judge to stop the public hunts.>>

BOISE, Idaho. - An Idaho Republican gubernatorial hopeful insists he was joking when he said he'd buy a license to hunt President Barack Obama.

Rammell, slated to run against incumbent C.L. "Butch" Otter in the May 2010 GOP primary, made the comment at a Republican rally Tuesday in Twin Falls where talk turned to the state's planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag.

When an audience member shouted about "Obama tags," Rammell responded, "The Obama tags? We'd buy some of those."

Rammell told the Times-News newspaper he disagrees with Obama's politics but was only joking.

Rammell says, "I was just being sarcastic. I would never support him being assassinated."

The former elk rancher and unsuccessful 2008 U.S. Senate candidate gained exposure in 2006 when the state ordered domestic elk be shot after they escaped from his ranch near Rexburg.
