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.
