Hunters would be allowed to use bait and dogs and could hunt at night, as part of the current proposal. In December, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed protections for wolves in Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota because their population levels have been restored to adequate levels. The same week, Governor Scott Walker ordered the DNR to begin implementing a wolf management plan to spell out the do's-and-don'ts of hunting problem wolves. The bill now goes to the full Senate for consideration.
