Wolf kill up to 5 in Michigan's first hunt in decades in the Upper Peninsula

LANSING, Mich. — At least five wolves have been killed during Michigan’s wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula.

The Department of Natural Resources updated the results today. The wolf season started Friday and runs through December, unless 43 are killed before the end of the year.

It’s the first hunt in Michigan since the wolf was placed on the endangered species list nearly 40 years ago. A total of 1,200 people are licensed to participate with firearm, crossbow or bow and arrow.

The DNR estimates the state’s wolf population at 658.
