Wisconsin's largest wolf hunt zone to close

Posted:

Wisconsin's largest wolf-hunting zone is about to close for the season.

Wildlife officials plan to close the zone that covers most of the southern two-thirds of Wisconsin, at 2 p.m. Thursday.

The kill limit for that zone is 30 wolves. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says 29 wolves are reported harvested.

That will leave only one zone still open for wolf hunting or trapping. That zone is a band that stretches across part of northwestern Wisconsin.

The DNR divided Wisconsin into six wolf hunting zones.

The hunt began Oct. 15 and will run until hunters reach the 251-wolf statewide kill limit or through the end of February, whichever comes first.
