Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan’s wolf hunt begins today in three distinct units in the U.P.
The DNR says the units were set in areas where other methods of controlling wolf populations have been ineffective.
The three designated Wolf Management Units are in Gogebic County with a target harvest of 16 wolves, portions of Baraga, Gogebic, Houghton and Ontonagon counties with a target harvest of 19 wolves, and in portions of Luce and Mackinac counties with a target harvest of eight wolves.
The season will run until the target harvest for each unit is reached, but no later than Dec. 31st.
A total of 1,200 licenses were sold, and no additional licenses are available.
