Just in case a judge steps in and cancels or delays the 2009 Idaho wolf hunt, hunters may be eligible for a refund on their $11.50 or $186 tags.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has announced its refund policy on unused or unusable wolf tags.
"If the wolf season is blocked before Sept. 1, hunters who have bought a wolf tag would be eligible for a refund. If the season is blocked on or before Oct. 9, hunters who can show in good faith they did not hunt may be eligible for a refund. The hunter must submit a request for refund by December 31 on a Fish and Game form along with the original wolf tag. Requests received after December 31 would not be eligible for a refund."
Tags go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday at IDFG vendors, IDFG offices, by telephone at 800-554-8685, or online at https://id.outdoorcentral.us/.
Earthjustice has filed suit in District Court in Missoula to try to stop Idaho's first wolf hunt in decades.
