Wolf hunt to end for this year Submitted: 12/23/2013
MADISON - Hunters looking to bag a wolf get their final shot today.

The 2013 Wisconsin wolf hunt will end when the last of the six wolf hunt zones closes today at 5 p.m.

The state wolf harvest quota for Zone 3 was set at 71 wolves.

The closure process started when wolf number 64 was harvested on Dec. 21.

Any wolves harvested up until today at 5 p.m. will need to be called in within 24 hours.

As of December 10th, hunters have killed 216 wolves.

174 of those were trapped.

Hunters shot 41 wolves with a gun, and one with a bow.

A spokesman from the DNR says that this has been a successful second season, and the harvest was well distributed across the state.
