      More than 90 percent of Wolf Hunt licenses sold

      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.
