Bill to Kill Up to 90% of Idaho’s Wolves Signed by Governor

A controversial bill was just signed into law by Idaho Governor, Brad Little. The bill, SB1211, authorizes the decrease of the wolf population by up to 90% in Idaho.

The bill allows an increase in hunting opportunities and authorizes the state to hire private contractors to kill the wolves. Hunters will be allowed to use night vision equipment, trapping, baiting and snaring to kill wolves with a single tag until the quota has been reached. The bill would also permit wolves to be hunted from vehicles and snow machines.

Are Whitetails Influenced By Moon Phase? The Answer May Surprise You

Every year many whitetail hunters head into the woods based on moon phase. The thinking goes, whitetails go nocturnal when the moon is full and are therefore much less active during the day. Inversely, they are more active when the moon is less full. The logic behind this is that whitetails’ behavior changes since it’s brighter out at night during a full moon and therefore easier and safer for them to move around at night. Following this logic, one thing a hunter can do to improve their success is to plan hunts around a new moon since deer will be more active during the day and stay home during a full moon because they are less likely to be active during the day.
