The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has closed four of its six wolf harvest zones after hunters and trappers reached or nearly reached quotas for the season.
Wolf Harvest Zone 5 closed to hunting and trapping of gray wolves effective Monday evening. Zones 1, 2 and 4 closed over the weekend.
Wolf hunters and trappers may still pursue wolves in Zones 3 and 6.
The DNR has allowed a total harvest of 150 wolves this fall, and 85 had been taken through Monday evening. Each zone has a separate harvest quota. Zones are closed to hunting and trapping when that quota has been reached or might be reached in the next 24 hours.
The harvest quota in Zone 1 - which includes all or part of Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, Iron, Washburn, Sawyer, Price and Rusk counties - was 32, and hunters took 35 wolves, the DNR reported.
The quota for Zone 3 - which includes parts of Washburn, Sawyer and Burnett counties - is 40 wolves. Hunters and trappers had taken just two as of Monday evening.
Wisconsin’s wolf hunting and trapping season opened Oct. 15.
