Minnesota antlerless deer hunters and wolf hunters and trappers have until midnight Thursday to get into a state license lottery, the Department of Natural Resources says.

Hunters can get into the lottery for a license online or by calling 888-665-4236.

The deer-hunting season is in November.

The state plans to offer 2,000 early-season and 1,300 late-season wolf licenses in 2013. The wolf-hunting seasons run from November through the end of January.

The DNR in July cut the number of wolves available for harvest for this year’s hunt, from 400 to 220.

Last year was the first year that the state allowed a wolf hunt after the animal was removed from an endangered species list. It was the first sanctioned taking of wolves since the 1960s, the Duluth News Tribune reported.

An annual DNR survey found the wolf population fell to an estimated 2,211 wolves in the state last winter, which is down about 25 percent, the News Tribune reported.

State officials do not want the population to dip below 1,600.
