DNR Proposes Wolf Hunting Season This Fall

by

ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is proposing an inaugural gray wolf hunting and trapping season this fall that calls for a harvest quota of 400 animals.  Although research indicates the Minnesota wolf population could sustain a higher quota, DNR officials want to take a measured approach to the state's first wolf hunting season.  Wolf hunting licenses would be limited to 6 thousand through a lottery system and hunters would be required to register the animals on the same day they were harvested.  The plan will be outlined on Thursday before the Minnesota Senate and House committees and the DNR will take public comments before finalizing a wolf season.  The state has an estimated wolf population of 3,000 and transitions from federal protection to state management on Friday, January 27th.
