Sale of Wolf Hunting Licenses Postponed until Sept. 28

The Department of Natural Resources today announced that it has postponed the sale of wolf hunting licenses – originally scheduled to begin Aug. 3 – until Sept. 28 to ensure that license-sales technology is able to handle the expected high demand.

“We anticipate that there will be a lot of people trying to buy a very limited number of licenses in a short timeframe,” said Adam Bump, DNR bear and furbearer specialist. “This is a first-come, first-served purchase, unlike other limited-license hunts that require an application and drawing process, so it presents a new challenge for our retail sales system. We want to make sure the system is equipped for the high volume so sales go smoothly and everyone has an equal chance to get a wolf license.”

Bump said that, in addition to ensuring that technology is up to speed, the DNR is working to put adequate Saturday staffing in place to make the license-buying process as fair and efficient as possible.

A total of 1,200 wolf licenses will be available for purchase beginning Sept. 28 at noon EDT (11 a.m. CDT) until Oct. 31, or until the license quota is met. Wolf licenses cost $100 for residents and $500 for nonresidents.

Wolf hunting season still will begin on Nov. 15. For more information about regulations, see the 2013 Wolf Hunting Digest, av
