State wolf season closed
Minnesota's first-ever wolf season closed at the end of shooting and trapping hours on Thursday, Jan. 3.
As of Jan. 2, 181 wolves had been registered in the late season northwest wolf zone out of a target harvest of 187. The northwest zone was the last of three management zones where wolves could be taken by permit since Nov. 3.
This amount of harvest, when combined with harvest totals from the early season and the other late season zones, brings the season harvest to 395.
For the late season, the east-central zone was closed to hunting Dec. 13. The northeast zone was closed Dec. 14. Nine wolves were harvested in the east-central zone and 58 in the northeast zone.
