The numbers are in from last winter’s wolf tracking survey in Michigan.
According to the DNR, there was a minimum of 762 adult wolves in 158 packs in the Upper Peninsula last winter, which biologists say points to a stable population. In 2022, the last time wolves were surveyed, the state estimated that there was a minimum of 631 wolves in the U.P.
The state is in the middle of the first year of a new camera survey of the wolf population that should provide a better look at the total wolf population as opposed to a minimum as the tracking surveys provide.
