A wolf shooting in the Huntersville State Forest in Wadena County has stirred up the local population at a time when Minnesota courts were grappling with a legal challenge to the state's inaugural wolf hunting/trapping season.


Thursday the Minnesota Court of Appeals refused to stop the wolf season, so 6,000 licenses will be issued by the DNR for the firearms season starting Nov. 3.
