Wolf Hunt Comes to an End in MI

Michigan's first wolf hunt has officially come to an end. The Michigan DNR's website reports that as of 12am, today, 23 wolves were killed since the season opener on November 15th. A target harvest of 43 was set but hunters in the three areas of the U.P. fell short...most likely due to cold weather conditions. Whether the wolf hunt will continue in the future is unknown right now... but the DNR will present a new recommendation to the Natural Resources Commission this summer. The total wolves reported in Michigan, before the hunt, was 658.
