Idaho to use helicopter gunners against wolves

It seems that wolves have been eating too many elk in Idaho.  Elk numbers in the Lochsa and North Fork Clearwater drainages have dropped from about 16,000 in the 1980s to about 2,000 today.  Idaho wildlife managers hoped that hunters would have taken about 60 wolves in the area this season, but as this story was written, only 6 had been taken.

Story from the Missoulian here.

Stay tuned.
