Minn., Wis. Wolf Hunts Show Different Approaches to Management

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota's first-ever regulated hunting season for wolves opens this weekend.

Wisconsin's wolf hunt has been under way for almost two weeks.

When it comes to wolves, Minnesota and Wisconsin have a lot in common -- in fact, Wisconsin's wolves probably migrated from Minnesota. But differences in the hunts point up divergent approaches to wolf management. And some observers worry about whether both hunts will disrupt wolf packs enough to cause more problems than before.

The big question is: How many wolves can people kill before they start to put the overall population at risk?
