Six wolves killed in U.P. wolf hunt

The Michigan DNR says at least six wolves have been killed so far in the Upper Peninsula wolf harvest.

Only 43 wolves can be harvested during the hunting season in three areas of the U.P.

Wolf Management Unit A is in Gogebic County, and one wolf has been killed there.

Unit B spans portions of Gogebic, Baraga, Houghton and Ontonagon Counties. Four wolves have been killed there.

Unit C covers parts of Luce and Mackinac Counties, and one additional wolf has been killed there.

Hunters must report wolves killed over the phone or in person the day the wolf is killed.

You can visit the DNR’s website for an updated number of wolves harvested. The DNR updates that site at 6:00 a.m. each day.

The hunt will continue until New Year’s Eve or until the 43-wolf limit is reached, whichever comes first.
