Marquette, Mich. Michigan authorities say at least 21 wolves have been killed in the Upper Peninsula during the state's first wolf hunt in decades.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says that's the total as of 6 a.m. Thursday. The department has expressed doubt that the hunt will reach its quota of 43 by year's end.

The take in the wolf hunt remained at 20 for around three weeks as frigid weather kept the killing down.

The season opened in three sections of the U.P. on Nov. 15.

Before the season, the DNR estimated that Michigan had 658 wolves.
