Gray wolf.

With about two weeks left in the inaugural wolf hunting season in Idaho, a seventh zone reached its quota and was closed.

The limit of 16 wolves in the Salmon zone was reached Monday, ending hunting in that central Idaho area.

As of Tuesday, 178 wolves of the 220 statewide quota have been reported to Idaho Fish and Game, leaving 42 for this season, which runs through March 31.

Hunters are required to report a wolf kill within 24 hours, and must present the skull and hide to a regional office or a Fish and Game conservation officer within five days.
