Wisconsin Wolf Hunt Closing In Two Zones

Friday, November 16th, 2012 at 8:26 am

Wisconsin is closing the wolf hunt season in two zones in the northeastern part of the state after quotas have been reached.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said Thursday it was closing the zone 2 and zone 4 Friday when hunting and trapping hours end.

The quota for Zone 2 was set at 20 wolves and the decision to close it came after 18 were killed. The quota for Zone 4 was just five wolves and four have been reported killed. All of the four other zones remain open.

The wolf hunting season will run until hunters kill 116 wolves or until the last day of February, whichever comes first.
