Game cameras took 11 million photos to help researchers count wolves

Idaho Fish and Game has a new estimate of the statewide wolf population through its new survey method using game cameras and mathematical modeling, which will be repeated annually and fine-tuned during the next few years.

At the Fish and Game Commission meeting on Jan. 23 in Boise, staff reported there were an estimated 1,541 wolves in the state during summer 2019. The estimate represents the peak population shortly after pups were born.

I believe it was IDFG that ran their own numbers through a "mathematical model" on wolf ungulate impacts and were so far off it was laughable, just sayin...
