Minnesota is closing its inaugural wolf hunting and trapping season in the final remaining zone as of Thursday evening. The Department of Natural Resources says hunters and trappers have now registered 181 wolves killed in the northwestern zone.
The Department of Natural Resources says it expects to soon fix a problem with the website that tallies the number of wolves killed in the state's inaugural wolf season. Hunters and trappers are required to check the site or a telephone hotline to see whether the quota has been reached and the season has been closed.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is closing the state's smallest wolf hunting and trapping zone effective Friday evening. The DNR says nine wolves have been taken in the east-central zone, where the quota is 10 for the late season, which opened Nov. 24.
Minnesota hunters killed at least 17 wolves during the opening weekend of the late wolf season, where trappers had their first chance at the animals. According to the Department of Natural Resources, seven wolves were taken in the Northeast Zone as of Sunday evening and 10 in the Northwest Zone.
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 state says more than 100 wolves have been killed during Minnesota's first managed wolf hunt. The Department of Natural Resources says 109 wolves have been taken in the first eight days of the hunt, which includes 47 in the northeast hunting zone.
Hunters participating in Minnesota's wolf hunt found the animals to be elusive on day one. A total of 3,600 licenses were issued for the early wolf season, which started Saturday. By that evening, 32 wolves were killed.
