- 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.
