Wolf hunting and trapping

It is the hunter or trapper's responsibility to determine the closure status of a wolf zone prior to attempting to hunt or trap wolf in that zone. If you are unsure, call the telephone reporting system 1-855-299-9653 or contact the DNR call center at 1-888-936-7463.

For the 2014-15 season, one half of available permits will be issued randomly among all permit applications and the second half will be issued through a cumulative preference point drawing. Successful applicants will be notified by letter, likely by late August. Applicants who are not successful in the drawing will be awarded a preference point toward future drawings. Wolf permit drawing will occur August 15.

Note: Season dates are Oct. 15, 2014 - Feb. 28, 2015.
