The Department of Natural Resources announced on Thursday that Minnesota’s early wolf-hunting season begins November 8th and the late season for hunting and trapping starts November 29th. A total of 3,800 licenses will be available — 500 more than last season — and the statewide target harvest of wolves is 250 — 30 more than last year. The DNR’s Dan Stark says they’re maintaining a conservative season and harvest target, and results from last winter’s survey indicate Minnesota’s wolf population remains stable. Hunters and trappers can enter the wolf license lottery beginning August 1st and the deadline to apply is September 4th. More information can be found on the Minnesota DNR website.
