Only 100 wolf hunting licenses remain out of 1,200 since they went on sale at 12 p.m. Saturday.
Of the 1,100 licenses purchased, the Michigan DNR reports one-third were bought online and two-thirds through point of sale.
The hunt is scheduled November 15 through December 31.
Licenses cost $100 for Michigan residents and $500 for out-of-state. The DNR is allowing 43 wolves to be killed in the following seven counties: Gogebic, Ontonagon, Baraga, Houghton, Schoolcraft, Chippewa, and Mackinac County.
"It??s a statistical process," said Darryl Shann, a conservation officer. "Just like with bear season, there are so many bears that need to be harvested, only so many hunters that will see a bear or be able to take a bear.
Gray wolves were placed on the endangered species list in 1974 until their removal in 2009.
A population of 200 wolves or more was required for five consecutive years before being removed from the endangered species list.
