Regular F&S.com Poster Shoots Wolf In Idaho

Familiar to readers of fieldandstream.com is regular poster Robert Millage, better known as "idahooutdoors." Now, it seems, Millage is getting known by everyone in the country with an interest in wolves. Tuesday, the 1st of September was the opening of Idaho's controversial wolf-hunting season. Millage, a fifth generation, 34-year-old Idahoan from Kamiah, guide with Selway Ridgerunner Outfitters and dedicated outdoorsman, has seen the explosion of wolves in his state, and the (coincidental or not) steep decline in elk numbers. All of which made him look forward to the chance to take one of Idaho's big game quota of 220 wolves. As luck would have it, Millage got his shot. If this wasn't the first big-game hunter-taken wolf in Idaho, or in the entire Northern Rockies in the US, it was damn close. These are the photos of Millage's wolf.
