As of the end of the day, Friday, October 11, 2013, hunters have harvested six
wolves since the state's wolf hunting season opened October 1, of the state's
total allowable harvest of 26 wolves with northwestern Wyoming's trophy game
areas. In addition, two wolves were harvested illegally prior to the start of the
season, but are tallied against the quota.
Two wolf hunt areas are closed after reaching their quotas: Area 5, with its total
of three wolves, and Area 10, with its one-wolf quota.
In addition to the 8 wolves killed as noted above, there have been 28 wolves
harvested in Wyoming's predator zone since the start of 2013.
