Wyoming wolves are trapped and killed in almost any manner in over 85% of the state. But yet, Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) is proposing to increase the mortality limit in the trophy hunting zones to 58 from the 44 last season, targeting more animals than in any other modern season to date. The proposal includes the allocation of higher hunt area quotas in areas where wolves are impacting big game populations. It also allows the purchase of up to two gray wolf hunting licenses instead of only one during any calendar year.
The WGFD is holding public meetings on the proposed 2018 gray wolf hunting seasons for comment. The final proposal will go to the G&F Commission at the July 10-11 meeting in Laramie, WY, allowing the public a short timeframe to respond. Comment deadline June 4, 5:00 p.m. The local Jackson, WY public meeting is at the Jackson Teton County Auditorium on May 17, 6pm.
How should you say it?
It is usually most effective to be persuasive, but not rude, sarcastic or angry. Speak from the heart of one who is more inclined to support our Game & Fish Department if and when doing what is best and right for all residents and visitors in Wyoming, now and into the future. Original words directly from your own heart and mind are more likely to be given consideration than words and phrases that sound scripted.
WU believes that there is no science-based foundation for “sport” or “trophy” hunting, trapping or managing a population to minimum numbers.
