MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The DNR is hosting a pair of public meetings next week in the U.P. to provide information and answer questions about wolf management and the possibility of a future wolf hunting season.
The meetings will take place in the following locations from 6 to 8 p.m. local time. On Tuesday at the Lindquist Student Center at Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, and on Wednesday at the Michigan Room of the University Center at NMU in Marquette.
The meetings will include presentations by DNR Wildlife staff on wolf management techniques and plans, and a question-and-answer session with members of the public. Meeting attendees will also be asked to participate in a survey regarding the possibility of the use of wolf hunting as a management tool in Michigan.
Officials say a previously announced meeting date for Newberry has been removed from the schedule due to the potential for additional meetings later this spring.
Dates and locations for any more meetings will be announced once scheduled.
