State wolf count analysis

From Ashland Daily Press:

For the eighth year, I reviewed in detail the tracking data from this year’s wolf count. The wolf count is conducted each year from December through mid-April, when the wolf population is at its lowest point. The count consists of data from tracking collars and on-the-ground counts by volunteers and DNR personnel. Public reports are also used.

This year’s minimum overwinter count is 925 – 952, an increase of 6.8 percent over the previous year’s count. The pack count increased to 232. Find wolf information by typing “wolf” into the subject line on the DNR’s face page.
