Grey wolf scalps are being taken into Medora, the county seat of Billings, in large numbers. Auditor Foley reports one person who took in 60 pelts for bounty at one time and also had 30 others at Dawson county, Montana. At this season of the year it is an easy matter for hunters to locate dens and dig out the pups, which count the same as grown wolves in securing county bounty. Some of the large cattle outfits, like the 777 and W bar, for example, make a distinction, paying $2.50 per scalp for the young and $5 for the old wolves.
