Hook and Hunting: Wolf Management Meeting - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Hook and Hunting: Wolf Management Meeting

Posted: Updated:

A hot topic throughout the state right now is the future of wolf management.

The Wolf Management Advisory Council met this week in St. Ignace.

The DNR Wildlife Chief tells 9&10 News the wolf population continues to increase, as expected.

Wolves were recently listed as a game species by the state, but they still can't be hunted at this time.

The council had a chance to give input on the future of wolf management, including the use of hunting to manage and resolve conflict issues.

A series of public meetings will be held by the DNR to give information on wolf management and to see how people feel about the public harvest of wolves.

Dates have not been set.
