ROSCOMMON, Mich. (AP) — A state board has voted to allow a 6-week hunting season this year in which up to 43 wolves can be killed in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The seven-member Natural Resources commission approved the hunt at a Thursday afternoon meeting in Roscommon.

State wildlife regulators recommended the plan. The wolf hunting season would open Nov. 15 and end Dec. 31 unless the target harvest is reached sooner. Michigan becomes the sixth state to authorize hunting wolves since federal regulations were lifted over the past two years in the western Great Lakes and the Northern Rockies.

About 1,100 wolves have been killed by hunters and trappers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. About 658 of the animals are believed to be roaming remote areas in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
