It took 50 years to get Michigan’s gray wolf population up to 658, and only 30 minutes to sell three-quarters of the available licenses—900 out of 1,200—when they went on sale on Saturday September 28.
Only 100 licenses were still available by 5 p.m. on Saturday for the season, which runs from November 15 through December 31, the news website MLive.com reported. State residents paid copy00 per license, while nonresidents’ price was $500.
All this to kill just 43 wolves.
