The last two wolves on Isle Royale made it through the winter but aren't expected to last much longer. The 7-year-old female and 9-year-old male are believed too old to reproduce. National Park Service officials are moving to bring more wolves to the island, perhaps later this year. Photo courtesy Michigan Technological University.

A 65-35 percent majority of 66 chapter representatives voted against MDHA supporting the use of crossbows as an option for all hunters during the entire archery deer season, which typically begins in mid-September and runs through the end of December. Two years ago the vote was 52-48 percent against, so this year's vote can't be interpreted as anything but a further stiffening of opposition.
