Michigan Wolf Hunting Licenses Available

 
Michigan Wolf Hunting Licenses Available
Posted Saturday, September 28th 2013 @ 6am  by Chuck LaTour, WOOD Radio news team

Licenses to participate in Michigan's first wolf hunt in modern times are going on sale.

The Department of Natural Resources says 1,200 licenses will be available beginning at noon Saturday. They'll cost $100 each for Michigan residents and $500 for out-of-state residents. The Natural Resources Commission approved the hunt this summer and scheduled it for Nov. 15 through Dec. 31. Opponents are gathering petition signatures for a referendum in hopes of preventing future hunts. The commission is allowing 43 wolves to be killed in seven Upper Peninsula counties. Hunters who get a wolf must report it by day's end. Others must check daily to make sure the quota isn't exceeded.

Licenses will be available online, at any authorized license agent and at some DNR offices.
