MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 2014 wolf hunting and trapping season in northeastern Minnesota will close at the end of the day Wednesday, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR posted a notice of the season closing on Tuesday evening — after hunters and trappers had harvested 30 wolves.

By Wednesday, wolf harvest in the northeast reached a target of 33 wolves.

The wolf hunting and trapping season will continue in the northwest and east-central zones for anyone with a valid license.

The season will end in those zones on Friday, Jan. 31 or whenever the target harvest is expected to be met — whichever comes first.

As of Wednesday, hunters and trappers harvested 51 wolves in the northwest zone and two in the east-central zone.
