From The Idaho Statesman:
_Two Idaho hunters shot wolves in opposite sides of the state opening the state’s first wolf season.
_Robert Millage of Kamiah said he was surrounded by a pack of wolves before dawn and waited until light to call them with a hand call that sounded like a wounded coyote. The 80-pound female wolf came fast to him 25 yards before Millage shot her with his .243 rifle in the Lolo Zone.
_”The whole area is lousy with them,” Millage said. . . .
_Meanwhile, shortly after sunrise archery hunter Jay Mize of Emmett walked out of his tent to see a wolf harassing his horse at Bull Trout Lake near Stanley. He walked back into his tent, put his rifle together and shot the wolf, said Jon Rachael, Idaho Department of Fish and Game wolf manager.
“He said he had bought a wolf tag but never planned to use it,” Rachael said. “He was going to have it framed.”
