First ‘official’ wolf kill confirmed on Colville Reservation

After three hunting seasons without harvesting a wolf, a Colville Tribal member has taken the first. 

Duane Hall, 37 of Omak, brought a gray wolf into the Colville Tribal Fish & Wildlife office for sealing on Friday, CTFW confirmed Monday. Just three of the estimated 18 to 20 wolves—spread out among at least three packs—are allowed to be taken, per CTFW's predator hunting regulations.
