Wolf Season Status
- The cost of a wolf hunting license is $100 for residents and $500 for nonresidents. In order to purchase a license, a hunter (10 years or older) is required to have either purchased a previous hunting license or taken a state-approved hunter safety education course.
- Limited harvest of 43 wolves in three areas of the Upper Peninsula
- The regulations create three Wolf Management Units (WMU):
- 2013 wolf season will open Nov. 15 and will run until Dec. 31 or until the target harvest for each WMU is reached.
- Bag limit is one wolf per person per year.
- Firearm, crossbow and bow and arrow hunting will be allowed on public and private lands.
- Hunters must report successful harvest over the phone on day of harvest. Once target harvest is met for a WMU, the entire unit will be closed for the season.
- Licensed hunters are required to check daily by phone or online to determine whether any management units have been closed.
