Minnesota DNR Hurries to Finalize Wolf-Hunt Details

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) – Now that Minnesota’s wolf-hunting season is official, the pressure shifts to state wildlife officials to finalize how to handle issues such as licensing and registration.

The wolf-hunting season will begin on Nov. 3. That’s also the first day of the state’s firearms deer season. The season became official Thursday when Gov. Mark Dayton signed the Game and Fish bill.

That gives the state Department of Natural Resources just under six months to figure out logistical details.

A Duluth News Tribune report says the DNR has the authority to set a harvest quota, structure the season, conduct a lottery to select hunters and reserve a portion of the annual quota for trappers.

Agency spokesman Dennis Simon says certain administrative aspects will be developed through a bit of trial and error.
