Nearly 150 Wolves Killed as Early Hunt Closes

ST. PAUL (AP) – The early season for Minnesota’s first regulated wolf hunt has closed with nearly 150 wolves killed.

The state Department of Natural Resources numbers show that by the Sunday 10 p.m. deadline for registering the last day’s wolf kills, hunters reported 147 animals taken in the state’s three zones.

The DNR had set a limit of 200 wolves for the early season. The number that weren’t taken to reach the limit will be added to the second season, which is open to both hunters and trappers. That season runs from Nov. 24 to Jan. 31. The limit for both seasons is 400.

The DNR issued 3,600 permits for the early wolf-hunting season and 2,400 for the late season.

The region’s wolves were taken off the endangered list last January.
