Quota reached, Idaho closes another wolf hunting zone
Idaho Fish and Game ended the wolf hunting season in the Middle Fork zone on Monday, with the limit of 17 animals achieved.
The area, located in central Idaho, is the sixth zone reaching its quota since the inaugural wolf hunt began in the state last year.
As of Monday, 146 of the predators have been reported killed, leaving 74 of the 220 statewide limit. Six zones remain open, with each closing either when its quota is reached or when the hunting season ends March 31.
