As big game hunting seasons come to an end this year in Colorado, a new report finds that hunting and fishing are as vital to the state’s tourism economy as skiing.
The wolf enters a different era in Wisconsin, today, and Minnesota later this fall: For the first time in recent history, hunters in those two states will be allowed to bait, shoot and trap wolves.
The Green Bay Press Gazette reports that the move comes after the Federal government "removed Great Lakes wolves from the endangered species list in January."
