More than 100 wolves taken in Minn. hunt


ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA (WKOW) -- Minnesota hunters have killed more than 100 wolves so far.

The state's first managed wolf hunt started eight days ago and the Department of Natural Resources says 109 wolves have been taken. Forty-seven of those have been killed in the northeast hunting zone. The Duluth News Tribune reports the seasonal quota for that zone is 58 wolves.

Minnesota's statewide quota is 200. The early hunting season ends November 18 or when the quota is reached. A second wolf hunting season, along with a trapping season, will start November 24 and continue through the end of January. That season also has a cap of 200 wolves.

In the meantime, Wisconsinites are killing or trapping wolves at a slower pace. That wolf hunting season started October 15 and according to the Department of Natural Resources, 69 wolves have been taken so far. The maximum harvest for the season is 116.
