Fish and Game manages wolves as a big game species. This provides for a general hunting season with tags available over-the-counter. Harvest limits apply in certain areas. Hunters can harvest up to five wolves per calendar year. Additionally, certified trappers may harvest up to 5 wolves during the trapping season. Hunters of bears, lions and wolves are all required to report harvests and must present the hide and skull to the Fish and Game Department within 10 days of harvest.
