|Monthly Wolf Report – September 2017
This report provides information about wolf conservation and
management activities undertaken by the Washington Department of Fish
and Wildlife from Aug. 15 to Sept. 14, 2017. It complements weekly
reports posted on this site that focus on management actions directed at
wolf packs subject to lethal removal due to predation on livestock.
Statewide wolf activity
In late July, WDFW determined that a dispersing animal from the Dirty
Shirt pack had met up with a dispersing wolf from British Columbia. At
this time, it appears that those wolves may be establishing a territory in
northern Stevens County. WDFW will continue to monitor this activity
throughout the fall and winter.
In addition, other wolves previously collared in Profanity, Smackout, and
Goodman Meadows have dispersed to northern Ferry County, the
Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and the Idaho Panhandle, respectively.
On August 17, WDFW caught and released a young-of-the-year wolf

WDFW Special Permit Draws
Drawing a special big game hunt permit isn’t quite as simple and straightforward
as it seems — or as a good many of us think it ought to be. How is it that homies
with well over a dozen preference points in each year’s permit drawing seem to
have diminishing odds rather than increasing odds of being drawn? The weighted
draw system is honest, but it appears that we complicate it ourselves. How?
It is a complicated issue. If you want to better understand “the draw,” your
odds, and how it all fits together, be at the Kittitas County Field and Stream
Club presentation at 7 p.m. April 9 at the Hal Holmes Center. That evening will
also be a first step in putting together the public conversations needed to find
solutions to a system suffering from the weight of its huge number of users. Your
thinking could help find fixes along the path ahead.

annual Chukar Run Banquet!
