Commission Meeting To Include Wolf Hunt Report

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State wildlife biologists will report on Michigan's recently concluded gray wolf hunt during a meeting of the Natural Resources Commission.

The meeting Thursday in Lansing also will include a report on the elk hunting season.

The state's first regulated wolf hunt ran from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31. Twenty-three wolves were killed in the Upper Peninsula. That was 20 fewer than the maximum number allowed. Officials said cold weather probably held the number down.

Before the season, the Department of Natural Resources estimated that Michigan had 658 wolves.

The commission also is expected to discuss allowable uses of deer salvaged from motor vehicle collisions.
