Minnesota hunters were eager to snatch up the 614 leftover wolf tags for the early season this past Monday. Within minutes of opening the sale of tags to hunters, all tags were spoken for. "I heard they were gone in 3 1/2 minutes,'' said Ed Boggess, Department of Natural Resources Fish and Wildlife Division director. There were a total of 3,600 tags offered for the early season hunt and 2,400 tags for the late season hunt. Hunters and trappers selected by lottery for the late season must buy their license by November 15th. Any leftover licenses will be made available to other applicants beginning noon November 19th and to the general public on November 21st.
