Increased Wolf Population Won't Affect Deer Season October 21, 2010



Following the 2009 Minnesota deer season, Northland hunters claimed deer populations have been dwindling because of an increase in the wolf population. ...


According to the research, an estimated 3,000 wolves roam Northland woods. It's believed each wolf requires 15 to 19 adult deer annually. That's approximately 45,000 to 57,000 deer annually per 3,000 wolves.

Estimates have deer populations near half a million roaming in wolf ranges. This equates to approximately 150 deer per wolf.
