Bill Would Start MN Wolf Season on Deer Opener

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota’s first wolf hunting season would open at the same time as the state’s main firearms deer season under a broad policy bill a Minnesota House committee will consider this week.

The main game and fish bill of the session will be sponsored by Rep. Tom Hackbarth. The Republican from Cedar said Monday it will be mostly similar to what the Department of Natural Resources has proposed. But he says his version would run the wolf season concurrently with the deer season, instead of later as the DNR proposed. And he says wolf hunting and trapping license fees would be $26, the same as a deer license, instead of the $50 the agency has recommended.

The House environment, energy and natural resources committee holds a hearing on the bill Thursday.
