Just to the left of the wolf tracks are the footprints of a coyote that followed along later. Federal officials removed Great Lakes wolves from the endangered species list in January. Given free rein to manage the species, Wisconsin and Minnesota lawmakers pushed aside the concerns of some environmentalists and established their first seasons. Wisconsin’s wolf season is set to open Oct. 15. Minnesota’s starts Nov. 3. (AP Photo/Steve Karnowski, File)
