In 2011, the gray wolf population in Montana rose 15 percent, causing alarm for ranchers and hunters, according to the Idaho State Journal.

Because of this, Montana wildlife officials are considering proposals on how to keep the wolf population in check. Some of the options include removing the statewide quota. In turn, if officials feel enough wolves had been killed in a specific area, they would close that area for further hunting.

Other options include allowing trapping and changing the season's end date to Feb. 28, 2013.
