Last wolf hunt licenses sell out quickly

Wolf hunt licenses sold out within five minutes Monday afternoon in a first-come, first-served sale.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources offered 614 licenses that were not purchased by hunters who won the chance to buy them through a lottery.

The state's first regulated wolf hunt starts this Saturday.

Last week, the Minnesota Supreme Court declined to hear a legal challenge to the new hunting season.
