Minn. taking applications for upcoming wolf season


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota is taking applications for its upcoming wolf hunting and trapping season.

The state will award 6,000 licenses by lottery for a statewide target harvest of 400 wolves. The statewide bag limit is one wolf.

The early hunting season starts Nov. 3 when the firearms deer season opens. The late hunting-and-trapping season opens Nov. 24. The seasons will close in the state's three wolf zones if the zone's quota is reached.

Lottery winners will be notified after the application period closes Sept. 6. Licenses go on sale by Oct. 15.

Wolves came off the endangered list in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan last January. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the state's wolf population is about 3,000 and has held relatively steady for the past 10 years.
