Again and again, we continue to hear the DNR admit they just don't know what will unfold with this first ever public MN wolf hunt.

"When the state’s first wolf season opens on November 3, someone will be savoring a cup of coffee in a warm popple palace, gazing down a long shooting lane toward a pile of wolf bait and waiting in comfort for a wolf to appear. Call it a travesty. Call it another example of poor political leadership. Unfortunately, an ugly truth remains. In Minnesota, we call it hunting."

Gray Wolves were eliminated from all lower 48 states when the last remaining 600 wolves which were in Minnesota were granted Federal protection in 1978. After 20 years on the endangered species list, the wolf population increased to about 2400 wolves in 1998 and the population has stayed stable at just under 3000 wolves in 2007. A wolf management Plan was passed into law in 2001 in preparation for the gray wolf Federal delisting. This plan took two years of the cooperative efforts of over 30 organizations and stakeholders and resulted in a compromise agreement. It states that "population management including public taking (i.e. hunting and trapping) will be considered by DNR in the future, but not sooner than 5 years after Federal delisting. If a public take was proposed then there would be opportunity for full public comment. Decisions for any public take will be based on sound biological data including comprehensive population surveys."
