The wolves not taken in the NW zone during the early season will be rolled over to the late season. I can't remember how many tags rolled over last year, but all the quotas were met during the late season.

In the early season the NE zone was closed at 31 animals of a possible 33. Last year the quotas ran over so the MNDNR was a bit more cautious this year.

The NW zone came in at 16 wolves short of the quota... Those have been rolled over into the late season.

The late season started today, but I was busy, and didn't get out. We've got snow coming this week so I'll be able to get the snowmobile out to do some cruising for sign. Wolves cover a pretty good range, but I can cover it faster, so the chess game will begin later this week... Tho I'll probably get out before the snow hits too, everything is frozen so I can get my wheelers pretty much anywhere.

Unfortunately no wolf for me this year... I couldn't get out nearly as much as I had hoped to, and with the lower quotas this year the season ended way sooner than I had anticipated... It's certainly a different hunt... I'll have to do a lot more research for the future, because if this year is any indication I suck at this wolf hunting thing... Next year is coming fast 123456

Seems like many of the Minnesota folks have tuned in... Half the quota, Half the time to kill them... Last year the season drew out to the end of the season date... Both years the killing went over the quota... Damn I wish I hadn't said that... Now I feel like I suck at this hunt even worse than before!!!

we all suck at it , cause we're new at it. but I know a guy here in idaho that went out with a baby cottontail call. he set up where he had seen and heard wolves in the past. he called for about five minutes and heard them start howling and a couple minutes later they had surrounded him and he shot two, which is how many he legally could. so don't give up. they may be a bit more intelligent then a coyote but they are still just a stupid animal

yote, another site I go to has a few guys that have hunted them. where I disagree with you is the stupid animal part. these things are controlled killers that are very good at what they do. that being said, would like a shot at one of these things. when I get back out there for a bear hunt, hoping I can get a tag for one. just in case. last time I/we were there, Queen said she saw one wandering thru the area we were hunting.

Had a wolf tag when I went on my last elk hunt in Idaho. Never saw one, but for the price it was worth picking up a tag. Lots of them in Alaska!
