Minnesota held wolf seasons from 2012-14 until courts blocked them.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said Wednesday it won't consider holding a wolf hunting or trapping season until 2022 at the earliest.

The agency said in a statement that it's taking longer than expected to update its 20-year-old wolf management plan, and it's now expected to be done by March.

"We will use our updated plan as we determine whether and how to use various management tools to ensure continuation of a healthy and sustainable wolf population in Minnesota," the statement said. "Consideration of whether to hold hunting or trapping seasons will be guided by the updated plan."
