The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has announced that wolf hunting and trapping in Zone 2, in northeastern Wisconsin, will close as of 3 p.m. today. Hunters and trappers already have registered 27 wolves in that zone, and the quota for the zone is 28.
Overall, hunters had taken 110 wolves through Tuesday. The state’s overall quota is 251, but individual zones will be closed as their quotas are reached. In Zone 1, covering much of northwestern Wisconsin, hunters and trappers had taken 44 wolves from a quota of 76 by Tuesday.
