ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – The Department of Natural Resources is closing the wolf hunting season in northwestern Minnesota at the end of Friday’s hunting hours.

The DNR reports that 86 wolves have been harvested so far in the northwest wolf zone, which is three wolves short of the harvest target number.

The decision was made Thursday evening in anticipation of the target being met by late Friday.

The wolf hunting and trapping season continues in the east-central wolf zone, which is expected to end Friday, Jan. 31, or if the target number is met before that date.

Hunters must have a valid license to participate in the harvest.
