GMU 19A Predator Control Program Closed
The Department of Fish and Game has closed the GMU19A predator control program according to an agency news release. The agency reported that the wolf population had been reduced to the desired level, so the season on wolves was closed as of April 3rd. The implementation plan required that 40-53 wolves remain in the unit from a mid winter total of 114-120. The closure was made to prevent reducing the population below the goal. This is the second of five years of a predator control program approved in 2004 in 19A.
