LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Department of Fish and Game officials say hunters have killed 116 wolves this hunting season through Dec. 15, about the halfway point of the 2012-2013 wolf hunting season.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/Ul63xp) that's down from 162 wolves killed by hunters at this time last year.

Jay Crenshaw of Fish and Game says it's not possible to draw many conclusions from year to year on harvest rates because Idaho hunters haven't been pursuing wolves long enough for biologists to establish trends.

So far this wolf trapping season, which started Nov. 15, hunters have taken 10 wolves.

Last season, hunters killed 255 wolves and trappers took another 124.
