A Wisconsin trapper from Oneida County caught a wolf in a foot-hold trap on Tuesday, the second day of Wisconsin’s wolf hunting and trapping season. That brings to five the number of wolves taken in the season, which opened Monday. Four hunters took wolves that day.
A total of 116 wolf permits are available to state hunters and trappers for Wisconsin’s wolf hunting and trapping season, which continues through Feb. 28.
So far, 632 Wisconsin residents and six non-residents have received licenses in the hunt, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
