MADISON - The statewide wolf hunt could be over before its late-February cutoff.

Hunters killed 20 wolves during the gun deer season that ended Sunday.

18 were killed by hunters with firearms. The other two were taken by trappers using foothold traps.

That means as of this morning, hunters have killed 98 wolves this season.

The DNR set a non-tribal quota of 116.

The wolf hunting and trapping season opened Oct. 15 and will close Feb. 28 or when harvest quotas are reached, whichever comes first.
