Powell resident again one of the first to harvest a wolf

When Mike Hirsch woke up Saturday and found no injunctions on the state’s wolf hunt, he went and purchased a tag.

The cutthroat trout conservation team at Yellowstone National Park expects to break a record this year, ridding Yellowstone Lake of more than 360,000 lake trout. The high mark was set last year, with 358,000 removed from the lake.
