    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.>>

MISSOULA, Mont. - Wolf advocates have decided not to appeal a federal judge's decision that let wolf hunting seasons go forward in Idaho and Montana.

Michael Garrity, executive director of the Alliance for the Wild Rockies, says focusing on the main lawsuit might lead to a decision while the hunts are still in progress.

Environmental and conservation groups sued the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in April over its decision to remove federal protection for wolves in Idaho and Montana, but not Wyoming.

Earthjustice argues that delisting shouldn't occur until Wyoming also has an acceptable wolf management plan.

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy of Missoula has not set a schedule for briefings or hearings on the lawsuit.

Montana's gray wolf season began at sunrise Tuesday in three districts in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and in the Beartooth Wilderness near Cooke City. Wolf hunting in the rest of the state opens on October 25. Hunting began in Idaho on September 1.
