The season will be split into an early season that coincides with the firearms deer season and a later season for hunting and trapping following the firearms deer season. A total of 6,000 licenses will be offered. The seasons will end if a quota of 400 wolves is reached.
The state will hold a lottery to select wolf license recipients. Wolf hunting and trapping licenses will be $30 for residents. Wolf trapping licenses will only be available to residents, and wolf hunting licenses will cost $250 for nonresidents. Nonresidents will be limited to 5 percent of the total issued hunting licenses.
