ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on Wednesday, July 7, said there will be no wolf hunting and trapping season in Minnesota in 2021 as the agency continues to develop a new long-term wolf management plan.

DNR officials made the announcement during a video meeting of the agency’s wolf plan advisory committee that is helping plot the future of wolf management in the state.

Agency biologists say they won’t authorize a hunt until after a new wolf management plan is in place which they said likely won’t happen until early 2022, but no later than March.
