Montana, Minnesota to Open Wolf Trapping Seasons
May 12, 2012
Wolf management was transferred from the federal government to the state of Minnesota in January when the population was removed from the Endangered Species List. The state is now setting rules to govern how a trapping/hunting season will operate.
In Montana, the state has instituted a wolf hunt for a couple of years now, but harvest objectives have not been met, so the state is looking for ways to increase opportunity to harvest more wolves, including allowing trapping.
