DNR delays sale of wolf hunting licenses

LANSING — Michigan has postponed the sale of wolf hunting licenses until Sept. 28 to ensure that license-sales technology is able to handle anticipated high demand.

The state Department of Natural Resources announced the postponement on Tuesday. Sales had been scheduled to begin Saturday.

The state’s Natural Resources Commission this month added the gray wolf to the game species list and scheduled a hunt for Nov. 15 through Dec. 31. The move followed changes in state law. The commission said up to 43 wolves in seven Upper Peninsula counties could be killed.

The DNR says 1,200 wolf hunting licenses will be available. Wolf licenses cost $100 for residents and $500 for nonresidents.

Foes of the plan to allow wolf hunting want Michigan voters to weigh in on the issue
