KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is considering several changes to hunting rules, including allowing the use of bait to hunt wolves.

The Idaho Mountain Express (http://bit.ly/2vu18Qt ) reported Friday the department is proposing the rule change in response to requests from hunters who want to use bait for hunting wolves outside of the black bear seasons.

Under current rules, wolves can be killed by hunters when they are attracted to bait set out for black bears, where hunting seasons are open for both black bear and wolf, but big game rules do not allow use of bait specific to hunting wolves.

The Department of Fish and Game is seeking public comment on the proposed changes until July 26.

    • I would say no. It’s been a continual downward spiral since 2011. I also read where they are no longer going to have an annual count.

      Humans are truly pathetic – building a wall through a wildlife refuge in TX, snow leopards in a continual war zone, our petty concerns dominate and really mean nothing. I don’t like the idea of us continually bungling through the world and killing everything in our path.

  1. How is this even hunting? Nothing is so vile……really just a canned hunt. But leave it to Idaho who does nothing but seek to make the slaughter of wildlife easier and easier for fat ass hunters.
    A sniper needs to be near these bait stations to take out the hunters.

    • Somebody needs to disrupt them in some way – put a human scent around, make noise,, whatever. There’s got to be a way to foul them up.
