Oregon Wolf Hunt On Hold

Wend Magazine

A scheduled wolf hunt in northeastern Oregon will remain on hold. If the hunt goes through, only two wolves would remain: the alpha female and a pup born just last spring. And this money, at least now, is only postponing the hunt while officials rule whether or not the hunt is legal. At least for awhile. In September , the Imnaha wolfpack found itself under the close watch of local ranchers and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW).

Hunting and Conservation: A Personal Perspective

Nature Conservancy - Science

My hunting partner, Lindsey, was wedged in the back of the plane between backpacks and rifle cases, probably thinking the same thing. We were starting a 10-day hunting trip into the front range of the Mackenzie Mountains. I’d been waiting five years for this day — to gain the adequate residency time required to get a permit for hunting big game animals here. The chance to hunt big game here was a childhood dream – chasing moose through swamps and sheep around mountains.
