DNR Prepares Recommendation on Wolf Hunting

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources expects to make recommendations on a wolf hunting season by May or June.

Furbearer specialist Adam Bump outlined the agency's plans for evaluating a possible wolf hunt during meeting of the Natural Resources Commission on Thursday. The Legislature last month approved a bill authorizing a wolf hunt, but the commission will make the final call.

Bump says the DNR has begun a survey to update the Upper Peninsula wolf population, which is believed to be around 700.

Over the next few months, the DNR will have public meetings, consult with Indian tribes and compile data about livestock and pets killed by wolves. The agency then will prepare recommendations on a hunting season for the Natural Resources Commission.
