      Natural Resources Commission talks water quality and wolf hunt

      The Natural Resources Commission met in Iron Mountain on Thursday to discuss many topics ranging from water quality to the upcoming wolf hunt.

      Commissioners from downstate presented information on wildlife management, as well as hearing updates on the wolf hunt. Department of Natural Resources officials noted that all 1,200 wolf hunt licenses were sold out within one week of their sale, and the hunt is scheduled for November 15.

      Some in attendance were also recognized for their conservation efforts, including some on water quality.

      "We're concerned about the quality of the water because we feel that water is the gold of the future," said Dave and Marcy Cella, award recipients. "So, we're concerned with proving that the quality of water of the Huron River in Baraga and Marquette counties is of excellent quality."

      The meeting at Pine Mountain Resort was the only one scheduled for Upper Michigan this year.
