ACROSS WISCONSIN - Traps have apparently become wolf hunters' weapon of choice in Wisconsin.
New state Department of Natural Resources data shows hunters used traps to capture 174 of the 216 wolves taken between the wolf season's Oct. 15 opener and Nov. 30. Hunters shot 41 wolves with a gun and killed one wolf with a bow.
Monday marked the first day of the season hunters could use dogs to chase down wolves. DNR large carnivore specialist Dave MacFarland said no hunters using dogs had registered any wolves as of Monday afternoon.
All but one of the state's six wolf hunting zones have closed after hunters reached their kill limits in the areas. Hunters were 37 animals shy of their kill limit in the last open zone as of Tuesday morning.
