    BILLINGS, Mont. - A federal judge says gray wolf hunts in the Northern Rockies can go on, denying a request by environmentalists and animal welfare groups to stop the first organized wolf hunts in Idaho and Montana in decades. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy said that plans to kill about 20 percent of the two states' estimated 1,350 wolves would not cause long-term harm to the population. The Idaho wolf hunting season started September 1 and hunters bagged three wolves on opening day.>>

    LEWISTON, Idaho. - The first hunter to report a wolf kill in Idaho says he's been flooded with nasty messages since his name hit the national media Wednesday. Robert Millage says he's been called a wolf murderer, a fat redneck and other names in about 50 phone calls and hundreds of e-mails. Some suggested that his real estate business will suffer, though Millage suspects he's more likely to gain clients than lose many. Millage says he has thick skin but has alerted law enforcement.>>

    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.>>

BOISE, Idaho. - An Idaho man was cited for wolf poaching after killing a female pup from a public road while standing behind his pickup truck in an area where wolf hunting wasn't legal.

The Eagle resident, whose name wasn't released, was cited Tuesday after shooting the young wolf Sunday evening in the McCall-Wieser wolf zone. It doesn't open to hunting until October 1.

In addition, it's illegal to hunt from a public road.

The man called the Department of Fish and Game's 24-hour hotline to report the kill, maintaining it was shot in the Sawtooth zone where hunting began September 1. He said he later realized it was in the McCall-Weiser zone after seeing a map.

The kill will be subtracted from the McCall-Weiser zone's hunt quota, reducing the total that can be shot legally there to 14.

His rifle, camera and wolf tag were seized, along with the pup's hide and skull. An investigation continues and no charges have been filed with the state courts.
