A total of 1200 licenses will be made available on a first come first serve basis starting September 28th. That’s the day of my 67th. birthday, and I’m hoping for a present from the DNR.
My grandson Quinn goes to school at Michigan Tech. in Houghton/Hancock which is one of the areas open to wolf hunting. We bear hunt the Marquette area and have seen and heard wolves while we sit on a bear bait. They are at the top of the food chain in the Upper and are thriving on deer, moose, rabbits, and “yes” some farm animals. Various packs of wolves have branched out all over the Upper Peninsula but the area’s on the map (pictured) A, B, and C are the only area’s where you will be able to hunt wolves. Hunting licenses will cost $100.00 dollars for residents and $500.00 for non residents. Personally I believe this hunt should only be available to Michigan hunters! The total quota for all units combined is 43 wolves. When that figure is reached the hunt will be called off.
The Department of Natural Resources has a print out in (PDF format) that explains how they came to the decision to hold a wolf hunt, the history of Michigan’s wolves, rules and regulations of the hunt, and various other information on the subject. It is very helpful.
