- You can still hunt for wolves in Wisconsin, but in fewer places.
Zone 5 will be shut down as of 6:30 Monday evening. That's in the west-central part of the state.
Two other wolf hunting zones in Northern Wisconsin closed for the season Sunday.
The Department of Natural Resources closed Zones 1 and 4.
As of 6:30 p.m. Sunday, hunters and trappers weren't allowed to go after wolves in the two areas. That's because hunters have already gotten the allowed numbers of wolves.
The DNR closed Zone 2 last week as well.
As of this evening, only 2 of the state's 6 wolf hunting zones will remain open. The wolf hunting season began Wednesday. The statewide kill limit is 150 animals.
The DNR's website shows that hunters have already killed 85 wolves across all zones. Only 65 more animals can be killed.
