On Wednesday, March 7, the Minnesota Senate approved a measure with a 24-9 vote to create a wolf season. The season 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 bill now moves to the Assembly, for their approval. They are scheduled to vote on it next Tuesday, March 13. If they pass the bill, it would move to the governor to be signed into law.
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.
We'll keep you posted. –Brian McClintock
