Hunters snap up licenses for Michigan wolf hunt
MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's first wolf hunt is turning out to be a hot ticket.
Officials say more than 1,000 licenses were sold Saturday, leaving just 100 by evening. The hunt starts Nov. 15 and runs through the end of the year.
The Natural Resources Commission is allowing 43 wolves to be killed in seven Upper Peninsula counties. Opponents hoping to stop future hunts are gathering petition signatures for a statewide vote.
A wolf license costs $100 for a Michigan resident and $500 for a non-resident.
State. Rep. John Kivela, a Democrat from Marquette, was among the first to buy a license at the Marquette DNR office. He tells The Mining Journal that the wolf hunt is an appropriate way to manage wildlife.
