Wolf permit decisions coming soon Submitted: 08/14/2013
MADISON - If you applied for a wolf permit, you'll find out soon if you get one.

Wildlife officials start deciding this week which hunters and trappers will get a wolf permit.

The DNR set this year's quota at 275 wolves.

The state's Chippewa tribes have laid claim to 24 wolves, leaving 251 available for non-tribal hunters and trappers.

The DNR has established a 10-to-1 permit-to-wolf ratio, which means the agency will issue 2,510 permits.

A total of 12,108 hunters and trappers have applied for a permit, down from 17,377 applicants for last year's inaugural hunt.

The DNR will award the permits through a lottery Thursday.

If you weren't selected this year, your chances improve next year.

Permit winners will be notified by mid-September.

The wolf season is set to begin on October 15th.
