Michigan lawmakers recently went around two ballot proposals that sought to end wolf hunting in Michigan.
They passed a law that allows wolf hunts to continue, but they apparently didn't pass their law in time for a hunt this year.
With two proposals concerning wolf hunts on the Nov. 4 ballot, the Natural Resources Commission will not schedule a hunt of gray wolves in the Upper Peninsula this year.
“We do not have the authority to set a wolf hunt now,” said John Matonich, a NRC commissioner during a commission meeting Thursday. “It’s happening too late in the year for 2014, so the NRC will wait until 2015” to set another hunt.
