Bill would require wolf season once delisting is final

From The Timberjay:

ST. PAUL— Three northeastern Minnesota lawmakers have introduced bipartisan legislation that would require the Department of Natural Resources to implement an open season on gray wolves in the state once the species is delisted as threatened in Minnesota.
Rep. Dave Lislegard, DFL-Aurora, Rep. Roger Skraba, R-Ely, were two of the three co-authors of the bill, HF 3903, which would also establish a northeast deer management task force by Oct. 1 of this year and would require the DNR to work with the task force to develop policies and law changes designed to increase the white-tailed deer population in the Arrowhead. The task force would be comprised of individuals who live or “operate” within the region and calls for membership to include hunters, wildlife managers, tribal members, a representative from the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, or MDHA, and other interested parties.
