Montana’s wolf hunt did not have a slow start like Idaho’s-
Out of the quota of 75, already 23 wolves have been killed. In total eleven wolves were shot over the weekend.
The entire state was open to hunting for just 3 days. Southern Montana’s quota was filled on Sunday with the hunt ending at sunset today (Monday). Nine wolves in southern Montana had already been killed near Yellowstone Park before the general wolf, deer and elk season opened this weekend, so it took just 3 dead wolves to fill the quota for district 3, which takes in most of southern Montana. Note: district 2 which is still open includes SW Montana, a much smaller area than district 3. See map.
