Minnesota's first regulated wolf hunting season will close Thursday at 10 p.m., according to the Department of Natural Resources.
The Star Tribune reports the statewide quota of 400 wolves is almost within reach. As of Wednesday afternoon, 395 wolves were registered.
A New Year's Day glitch in the DNR's reporting system is already telling hotline callers that the season is closed. The error is likely due to the change in date from 2012 to 2013.
The northwest section will close Thursday night to end the season.
