Idaho's wolf harvest is at 142 with 78 wolves left to shoot before the end of season.
It looks like most of the wolves are being taken in lolo ans salmon hunting districts.
These areas back up to Montana,where there has been a real deduction in the game population.

Use these guide lines when skinning and transporting your wolf home;

When skinning an animal use these common sense precautions:
Wear rubber (latex) gloves.

Minimize contact with animal fluids, brain and spinal tissues.
Wash hands and knives thoroughly after you field dress.

It's legal to harvest a radio-collared wolf, but the collar must be returned to Fish and Game. Please don't cut the collar belting.

Some wolves suffer from mange-a parasitic infestation caused by mites that results in the loss of fur.

Hunters should avoid skinning a mangy wolf.

Tag the animal and report the kill to Fish and Game.

Hunters can expect a field-dressed adult wolf pelt to weigh about 15 pounds.

An early autumn wolf pelt won't be quite as prime as a late season winter hide, but most will have thick and ample fur for tanning.
