Well hunting wolves is still legal now in America, but it is a controversial topic. Should it be legal or illegal, they are still dicussing. After trapping, shooting and poisoning by farmers and ranchers essentially pushed the gray wolf out of the northwest United States for most of the 20th century, wolves were placed on the endangered species list in 1974. It became officially illegal to hunt and kill wolves in the lower 48 United States.
Honestly, I’m not completly sure about when the last time it was legal, but you can look at the citations I have to get more information. These citations are really good so make sure you do check it out.
Alaska has always had a wolf season because of the high population of wolves within the state. The government banned poisoning and bounties in 1968, but still had a control hunting season. The state has a highly controversial aerial wolf hunting program. Hunters can hire a helicopter and basically run down the wolves from the air. There are many organizations that oppose this, and hopefully in the future it will be abolished.
