Minn.'s Last Wolf Hunt Licenses Sell Out Quickly
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota has quickly sold out its remaining wolf hunt licenses for the early season.
Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/RsvcD5) reports the licenses sold out within five minutes Monday afternoon. The sale was first-come, first-served.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources offered more than 600 licenses that were not purchased by hunters who won the chance to buy them through a lottery.
Minnesota's first regulated wolf hunt starts this Saturday. A separate hunting-and-trapping wolf season begins Nov. 24.
Last week, the Minnesota Supreme Court rejected an effort to block the state's wolf hunting season.
