Minnesota Wolf Hunt Passes Senate, Delayed in Assembly

A bill to create a wolf hunting season was introduced in the Minnesota Senate, and they did not waste anytime passing the measure.

On Wednesday, March 7, the Minnesota Senate approved the measure with a 24-9 vote. The bill quickly moved to the Assembly, for their approval, but they delayed the vote until next Tuesday, March 13. If they pass the bill, it would move to the governor to be signed into law.

The legislation would create a wolf season that would coincide with the firearm deer season, and allow hunters to harvest 400 wolves annually. The bill also cuts the once projected license fee from $50 to $26.

The Assembly must vote on the bill before the end of their session, next Friday, March 16. If they fail to, the bill will have to be reintroduced next year.
