147 wolves harvested in early season hunt
Minnesota's first regulated wolf hunt moves into a new phase Saturday when sport trappers will be allowed to try their luck for the first time since the region's wolves came off the endangered list last winter.
Trapping was not allowed in the state's early wolf season, which closed Sunday. Hunters registered 147 wolves killed, which was fewer than the early-season quota of 200 but about double what the Department of Natural Resources had been expecting.
