Deadlines Loom For Minnesota Wolf Season Licenses

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s prospective wolf hunters are taking their time about buying their licenses.

Six-thousand hunters were selected in the lottery for the right to buy licenses for Minnesota’s inaugural wolf season.

Hunters selected for the early wolf hunting season, which coincides with the firearms deer season starting Nov. 3, must buy their licenses by Wednesday, Oct. 24. As of Monday, the Department of Natural Resources had sold 1,155 of the 3,600 available early season licenses.

Lottery winners for the late hunting-and-trapping season, which opens Nov. 24, must buy their licenses by Nov. 15. The DNR says it has sold 305 of the 1,800 late season hunting licenses and 166 of the 600 available trapping licenses.

Licenses that remain unsold by the deadlines will become available to other hunters.
