Wisconsin Closes Another Wolf Hunting Zone

Monday, December 3rd, 2012 at 6:51 am

On Sunday, Wisconsin closed a third wolf harvest zone.

The Department of Natural Resources says Zone 1 in far northwestern Wisconsin closed to hunting and trapping of wolves effective 5 pm, Sunday. The zone’s quota of 32 wolves was reached Saturday. Zones 3, 5, and 6 remain open but the DNR expects zones 5 and 6 to close soon because both are within two wolves of their harvest quotas.

The zone that just closed included most of Douglas, Bayfield and Ashland counties. The zone containing most of Burnett county, most of Washburn county and parts of Sawyer, Rusk, Chippewa, Taylor and Price counties remains open.

DNR says wolf hunters and trappers should check their website daily for additional closures.
