Wolf hunt updates: Eagle man charged with poaching
Randy Strickland was arraigned in Valley County on misdemeanor charges of
taking a game animal illegally and shooting from a public highway, according
to Idaho Fish and Game. The agency says the wolf was shot at about 6 p.m.
Sept. 6 in an area closed to wolf hunting at the time.
The agency says Strickland has pleaded not guilty.
® Kills are approaching harvest limits in the Upper Snake, Palouse-Hells
Canyon and McCall-Weiser wolf hunting zones, prompting wildlife managers to
prepare to close the season in those areas.
Statewide, there were 69 wolf kills reported through Tuesday.
® The first wolf tag ever printed in Idaho has sold for $8,000 to Johnny
Morris, the founder of Bass Pro Shops. Morris bought the tag last week in an
auction sponsored by the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation.
