Shoshone-Bannock Tribes to hunt in national refuge
For the first time since 1912, the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of Idaho will return to its traditional hunting grounds in Wyoming.

The tribe signed an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to hunt up to five bison in the National Elk Refuge. Public hunting is allowed in the refuge as part of a management plan that was finalized in April 2007.

The tribe's hunt will be ceremonial in nature.
