Another Wisconsin Wolf Hunting Zone To Close

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

A fourth wolf-hunting zone is closing in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says hunting and trapping of wolves in Zone 5 covering parts of central Wisconsin will be closing at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The quota in Zone 5 was 23 wolves. The 23rd wolf was harvested on Monday, which triggered the closing process. With that closing, only Zone 3 and Zone 6 remain open to wolf hunting.

The DNR says it expects Zone 6 to close soon as it is one wolf away from meeting its quota. Zone 3 covers parts of Burnett, Burnett, Sawyer, and Rusk Counties in our listening area, and that zone remains open.

The Wiscoinsin DNR encourages hunters to check it’s website daily for updates.

The goal was to harvest 116 wolves during the state’s inaugural hunt this year which began Oct. 15 and will close Feb. 28 or when harvest goals are reached.
