Idaho Game Officials Say 245 Wolves Bagged This Year

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Hunters appear to be having less success hunting and trapping wolves in the Idaho backcountry than a season ago.
    
Idaho Fish and Game officials announced Monday that hunters had bagged 245 wolves this season. At the end last season, hunters killed 379 wolves.
    
There is still time for hunters to make gains on last year's mark.
    
Hunting and trapping in most zones across the state remain open through the end of March. Seasons in the Lolo and Selway zones in the north-central part of the state remain open through June 30.
    
Agency officials are encouraging hunters and trappers to focus on the hard-to-reach backcountry where success rates have been low. But they say wolves in those areas are less likely to have had encounters with hunters.
