    BOISE, Idaho. - State wildlife officials say the first wolf hunting tag ever printed in the state has sold for $8,000 to the highest bidder. The high bid came from North Carolina resident Jonny Morris, the founder of Bass Pro Shops. Morris bought Wolf Tag No. 1 last week in an auction sponsored by the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation. Morris says he will give it to his son, who is planning to hunt in Idaho later this year.>>


















(Robert Millage is the state's first successful wolf hunter and said
after he killed a wolf in 2009 he was flooded with nasty messages)


BOISE, Idaho. - A Boise wolf advocate has used a public records request to get the names of hunters who reported killing a wolf in Idaho and posted all 122 names on a Web site.
     
Rick Hobson also bought an ad in the Idaho Statesman that directed people to the Web site.
     
Hobson says his intention in getting the names from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game was not to cause the hunters to be targeted for harassment by wolf hunt opponents, but he says hunters who bagged wolves have by default inserted themselves into the debate.
     
Robert Millage is the state's first successful wolf hunter.
     
He says he's been dealing with harassment since he killed a wolf last September on the opening day of the season.

Hunter bad-mouthed after wolf kill

(September 3, 2009)

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, the Lewiston Tribune reported. Some suggested that his real estate business will suffer, though Millage suspects he's more likely to gain new clients than lose many.

Millage says he has thick skin. He's alerted local law enforcement and asked them to keep an eye on his business and home, just in case.

The wolf hunting season began Tuesday in Idaho, just months after they were removed from the federal endangered species list. A wolf hunt in Montana is scheduled later this year. The animals remain under federal protection in Wyoming.
