Hunting records bill moves forward


















(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. - Lawmakers are pushing to restrict hunting records after a wolf advocate published the names of 122 successful wolf hunters on a web site last month.
     
The House Resources and Conservation Committee approved a measure Tuesday that makes the names of people with hunting and trapping licenses private. The Department of Fish and Game is currently required to release that information.
     
In January, a wolf advocate published the names of hunters who had reported wolf kills. Rick Hobson of Boise said he was hoping to spark a dialogue about wolves in Idaho.
     
Republican Rep. Judy Boyle of Midvale told the committee the government should protect people who legally hunt from unfair harassment.
     
A lobbyist for the newspaper trade group Idaho Allied Dailies said lawmakers should go after people who hound hunters rather than close off government records from the public.

Wolf advocate puts hunters' names on Web site

(January 29, 2010)

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.
