2017 Wyoming Wolf Hunt Fires Off

The gray wolf hunting season officially kicked this weekend in Wyoming.

Wyoming Game and Fish Biologists set a hunting limit at 44 wolves, which includes 12 trophy game-hunt areas in the northwest part of the state.

Earlier this year a federal appeals court lifted federal protection for Wyoming wolves.

This came after a 2014 decision which put wolves back on the endangered species list.

Wyoming's wolf hunting season runs through December 1st.
