Second phase of state's wolf hunt begins


Minnesota's first ever regulated wolf hunt moves into its second phase Saturday where trapping is also allowed in addition to hunting.

The Pioneer Press reports hunters registered 147 wolves killed in the early season that closed Nov. 18, just below the phase-one quota of 200.

Officials with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources expect trappers to be more successful because they can set up snares in several locations at once.

The overall statewide quota is 400 wolves.

Licenses for the late season are already sold out. About 300 surplus licenses went on sale Monday and were gone in less than a minute
