Why are wolves listed as a big game animal? My understanding is they are a predator.

Answer

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission and the Department of Fish and Game listed the wolf as a big game animal.  It is our intent to manage wolves responsibly, primarily through hunting seasons, just like we manage other big game species.
