The Saskatchewan government is expanding the wolf hunt zone in the northern grainbelt.
Environment minister Scott Moe says the entire fringe of the northern grainbelt is open to the wolf hunt from October 15th to March 31st of next year.
He says wolf attacks on livestock is an ongoing problem for producers in areas near the provincial forest.
Moe says wolf hunting licenses are only available to Saskatchewan residents and there is no limit on the number.
Moe expects a small harvest rate, 5 per-cent or less, but says its designed to push the wolves back into the northern forest.
Last year, 200 wolf tags were sold last year.
Licenses must be picked up at ministry offices and are not available on-line.
