- Everyone doesn't agree with Wisconsin's wolf hunt. However the state is in the middle of its third wolf season.
It started Wednesday. Since then, trappers have found major success, quickly in the Northwoods.
Four of the six wolf zones are already closed. Zones 3 and 6 are still open.
Little Rice's Scott Kuharske and John Trainter have been hunting since they were kids, but this was their first time wolf trapping.
"I've been extremely excited about taking on a new endeavor outdoors and having a new chance of doing something different in the woods," said Kuharske.
As a novice in wolf trapping, they needed to understand plenty before the season kicked off.
"Getting ready for the season, nothing like I've done in any of my outdoor experiences," Kuharske said. "Learning taking classes for trapper safety. Doing the reading of the trapping, learning the art of it."
Trappers say the sport isn't as easy as it may seem. It can be overwhelming to the beginner.
"The way they make their sets and the technical things to get the animals in to get an animal to come within an inch and a half circle of your property to step on your trap is incredible," said Kuharske.
Trappers use preserved meat bait to attract wolves. They rub it in a bait hole right above the trap in hopes of luring the wolf in.
The wolf has to set off the trap, which leaves it out of the hands of the hunter.
"Deer within a 100 yards of you your safe with duck hunting, call a duck in within 30 yards I've got my query, now I've got to put my animals within an inch and a half to get it into a trap," Kuharske said. "It's truly an experience."
Scott's partner nearly had a painful experience. While putting a trap together, it went off but luckily only got his glove.
"I was warned about how sensitive the traps can be," Trainter said. "I was trying to brush off the trap a little bit and I got a little too close, too heavy on the trap I was lucky that I only got caught on the glove."
The two weren't able to trap a wolf before zone two closed at noon on Saturday but Kuharske said the two had a great time enjoying the outdoors and the beautiful fall weather.
