ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota is releasing details about its plans for the state's first regulated wolf hunting and trapping season.
The wolf season will start Nov. 3 when the firearms deer season opens.
The Department of Natural Resources proposed Monday to split the season into two parts: an early wolf hunting season coinciding with the deer season, and a late wolf hunting-and-trapping season after the deer season.
The DNR proposes to offer 6,000 licenses, with 3,600 available for the early season and 2,400 for the late season. A minimum of 600 late-season licenses will be reserved for trappers.
The target harvest quota of 400 wolves will be split equally between the early and the late seasons.
The DNR will take public comments only through an online survey, which will run through June 20.
