Tag sales for the state’s second wolf hunt continue to lag, although the coming hunting season includes no quotas, bigger bag counts than the state’s inaugural hunt, and trapping in certain areas.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game had sold 4,717 resident tags and 175 nonresident tags as of Aug. 9. Before the state’s 2009-10 hunt, 4,000 tags sold on the first day they went on sale.

“There was a slight bump in tag sales around the beginning of the month,” said Niels Nokkentved, Fish and Game spokesman. “But sales are leveling off again.”
