Gray Wolf Hunting Could Return To Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin

Gray wolves in three states, including Michigan, could find themselves in the crosshairs of hunters this fall.

A court of appeals is expected to release a ruling regarding wolf hunting seasons in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Depending on the ruling, wolf seasons could be held as soon as this fall.

Gray wolves were once hunted to the brink of extinction in the lower 48 states.

The population has recovered to around 5,500 thanks to the endangered species act and reintroduction programs.
