Michigan hunting licenses to go on sale for first hunt since 1974

Michigan will begin selling wolf hunting licences in August which will mark the first time the state has prepared to hunt wolves in nearly 40 years.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has announced that for the first time since 1974, licenses will be sold starting August 3rd.

How much is a wolf’s life worth? $100 for residents and $500 for non-residents. The sale of licenses is limited to 1,200. Assuming the quota is hit, the state will generate revenue between $120,000 and $600,000.

Wolf hunting is by no means unopposed in Michigan, as evidenced by the amount of money raised by those opposed to the wolf hunt, but it seems unlikely that anything will prevent the state from allowing 43 wolves to be hunted in 2013.
