CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department continues to hear from the public on proposed changes for the state's second annual wolf hunting season later this year.

Under the changes, fewer wolves would be killed compared to last year.

Last year, the kill limit for a trophy-game zone outside Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks was 52 wolves. Hunters killed 42 wolves during the hunting season, which began Oct. 1 and ended Dec. 31.

The proposed rules for this year's season set a kill limit of 26 wolves. Upcoming public meetings on the changes will be in Sheridan on Tuesday, Cody on Wednesday, Jackson on May 28, Green River and Sundance on May 29, and Casper on May 30.

Shooting wolves on sight continues to be allowed outside the trophy-game zone.
