Idaho Fish and Game to review wolf baiting proposals

A proposed Idaho Fish and Game rule that would allow the use of bait during wolf hunts is raising eyebrows. No other state allows that, and Idaho currently allows bait to be used only in the hunting of black bears. That practice is a controversial one. A 1996 voter initiative that sought to ban it prompted a high-profile, emotional debate before failing at the polls, 40 percent to 60 percent.
