The Minnesota DNR is increasing the target harvest for this fall's wolf hunt from 250 to 280.

The department announced the increase Thursday and also said a total of 3,800 wolf hunting and trapping licenses will be available, which is 500 more than last year.  Hunters and trappers can apply for the licenses, which cost $30 for Minnesota residents and $250 for nonresidents, beginning Aug. 1.

The early wolf season will begin Saturday, Nov. 8, simultaneously with the deer season, with different end dates depending on the area.  The late season will begin Nov. 29 and continue until quotas are met or Jan. 31, whichever comes first.

The DNR says the latest population survey estimates that there were 2,423 wolves living in Minnesota this past winter, which is 212 more animals than estimated the previous winter.  The wolves lived in 470 packs in the northern half of the state.

Information on wolf hunting is available at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/wolf, while wolf management information is available at www.mndnr.gov/wolves.
