    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.>>

BILLINGS, Mont. - Wolf hunting will end after sunset on Monday across most of southern Montana after the region's quota for the predators was exceeded on the first day of the general hunting season.

Public wolf hunts this fall in Montana and Idaho are the first since the animals were removed from the endangered species list earlier this year.

Montana has a statewide quota of 75 wolves, including 12 for south-central and southeast Montana.

Nine of those 12 were taken in an early season hunt adjacent to Yellowstone National Park. Four more were taken in that hunting zone within hours of the general season opening on Sunday, prompting the closure.
