Wolf hunt bill advances in Senate

Post by Mr Wolf25 » Fri Mar 09, 2012 10:12 pm

Gray wolf hunting and trapping season legislation passed a Senate committee today (March 6), setting up a possible gray wolf hunting season to coincide with the opening of the gun deer season in November.

Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Brainerd, saw his bill pass the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee after testimony both in favor and in opposition to the proposed seasons on the recently delisted gray wolf.

Gazelka spoke of finding a balance in managing the state's wolf population, estimated at about 3,000 animals.

Sportsmen for Change and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association applaud the legislation, Sportsmen's spokesman Garry Leaf calling it historic.

"This is our No. 1 priority of the legislative session," said Cory Bennett of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association.

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) had proposed a wolf hunting season starting after the gun deer opener, but Deer Hunters Association officials argued that having the wolf hunting season coincide with the gun deer season would provide hunters with a greater opportunity to hunt wolves.

The DNR has proposed a "conservative" hunting and trapping quota of 400 wolves statewide.

I actually don't see the harm in this bill. As long as the hunting and trapping is moderated, I see no harm. I feel this could actually help keep the population under control and whatnot. At least, it will most likely prevent overpopulation... Anyway, I recall reading about this sometime earlier this year, good to know a solution has been found. Thank you for sharing. ^-^

Yes. Hunting is simply overpopulation management; if you keep it under control, it's fine. Thank you for sharing!
