ST. PAUL, MN (KNSI) - The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the Sept. 6 deadline is rapidly approaching for people interested in participating in this fall's wolf hunting and trapping seasons. 

The DNR's wildlife research manager Lou Cornicelli said so far more than 4,700 hunters and trappers have applied for one of the 6,000 permits that are going to be available this year.

"You have the chance to apply for one of three licenses, early hunting, late hunting and then late trapping," Cornicelli said. "The cost is $4 dollars to apply, but realize this is a new hunt so you have to be in tune to that deadline which again is Thursday September 6th."

Cornicelli added that Sept. 6 is also the deadline for apply an either sex deer hunting permit.
