Up to 6,000 Minnesotans may get the chance to hunt and trap wolves later this year under a plan unveiled Wednesday by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Welcome hunters. Hunt safely.

Have seen more wolves than deer the past three Novembers. Time to show some love to the incredible edibles.

This is music to my ears. A nice Wolf skin on my wall would look nice!

I am horrified to read these comments. Says something about how little we have evolved, and how blood thirsty society has become. How macho.
And to think in the year 2012, big brained homo sapiens want to use ancient and barbaric traps to kill these magnificent animals. Seriously, let’s try that trap out on you, see how that feels on your arm. If you can’t humanely murder these animals, there should not be a hunt at all.

In all fairness, trappers generally trap (in my experience) more for economic than sporting ends. If you want a moderate “in” at meetings and whatnot you might try arguing that only conibear traps be used; they’re designed to kill rather than hold.
Also in all fairness, if most of the commenters on here can claim more than two brain cells held together by an alcohol molecule they ought to be ashamed of themselves.

Patrick….. Grow up. Minnesota is spending tons of money to remove 190 of these vermin every year….. Without the relief of removing the trouble the trouble making wolves would overrun Minnesota in short order! According to you, do they need to kill these 190 wolves! The numbers are not in for 2011 but in 2010 MI, MN, & WI all had record depredation! What the state needs to do is charge disnified people like you to pay for the issues you create!

Patrick, assuming you have never spent a minute in the woods Im not surprised by your intelligent comment. There is NOTHING wrong with the hunting of wolves when the time is right. Now is that time. I agree Wolves are a beautiful creature but they have to be managed just like Deer. Were you barking on here when the city of Duluth allowed the hunting of Deer in city limits due to Deer eating in peoples gardens?
Saying things like you do is another reason PETA doesnt have a leg to stand on 99% of the time.
