Posted in: All News, Front Page News, Great Lakes Wolves News, News, North American Wolves News, WolfWatcher

Michigan’s  DNR will be holding public meetings regarding the potential wolf hunting season.  The meetings will  provide information to the public (about an hour long presentation)  and answer questions regarding wolf management and the possibility of a future wolf hunting season. There will be a survey for the audience to complete that will be used to capture additional input.   Please be advised that there has been a change to their meeting schedule – Newberry meeting was cancelled.

ALL MEETINGS ARE FROM 6-8pm (Ironwood is 6-8 Central time).

  • Tuesday, March 12th- Ironwood- Gogebic Community College E4946 Jackson Road, David Lindquist Student Center
  • Wednesday March 13th- Marquette- Northern Michigan University 1401 Presque Isle Ave., University Center, Great Lakes Room
  • Tuesday March 19th- Gaylord- Wisconsin Street Hall, 610 S Wisconsin St
  • Thursday, March 21st- Lansing- Lansing Center, 333 E. Michigan Avenue- Room 201

The DNR’s recommendation on a wolf management season will be presented to the Natural Resources Commission (NRC) for consideration no later than June 2013. Whether a wolf season will be established and what the season would entail is at the sole discretion of the NRC.

 

The Michigan DNR is gathering input regarding a possible wolf hunt that could begin as early as the fall of 2014.  DNR has vowed that any hunting season would not jeopardize the wolf population and will not include the use of dogs to hunt wolves; however trapping, baiting and predator calls may be considered.   If  you  would like to participate in the survey, go to the MICHIGAN WOLF SURVEY  so that your voice is heard. 

DNR is also accepting questions/comments at [email protected] Subject Line: Wolf Input
