Aerial Hunting

Anchorage, Alaska - The state's wolf control program has reached its bag limit in one of the regions open to aerial wolf hunting.

The state's Department of Fish and Game says the central Kuskokwim River area is now closed to shooting wolves from planes. Officials say they wanted to reduce the number of wolves in the area from 120 to about 40 or 50. Officials say hunters and trappers have killed more than 60 wolves, leaving an appropriate number in the area.

Wolves are still being hunted in other areas of the state, such as McGrath, where aerial wolf hunting is allowed.
