STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS28646C2 / H0238
The purpose of this bill is to change the classification of the wolf in some big game management units to a
predator. That change would allow different methods of take in units where the wolf is classified as a predator.
This bill has a threshold of 50 packs before some management responsibility will be returned to IDFG. It finally,
mandates a report be given to Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
Wolf tags sell for $13.50 or $11.50 lock for residents and $31.75 for non residents. There will be no fiscal
impact on the State General Fund monies but there will be an unknown reduction in Fish and Game funds.
Senator Van T. Burtenshaw
