Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Wolf hunters must be getting better, as they are quickly closing in on the harvest quota for this year.

Both zone one and zone five will be closed today.

The DNR closed the zones for hunting and trapping gray wolves.

It's effective Wednesday at 7 P-M.

Zone ONE is in the northernmost part of the state.

Zone FIVE is in the central part.

It includes parts of Wood and Adams counties.

This makes it THREE wolf harvest zones to close this year.

Zone two closed just one week into the season.

People can still hunt in Zones 3, 4, and 6.

he DNR set a statewide quota of 251 wolves for the season.

The D-N-R said yesterday that 168 wolves were shot-and-trapped since October 15th.

Eighty-three more animals can be taken -- and when they're gone, the season's over.

Gun deer hunt brings business to the Northwoods, some worry new rules could affect tourismSubmitted: 10/22/2014

NORTHWOODS - Some Northwoods businesses worry that new deer hunt regulations could hurt tourism.

The gun deer hunt brings traffic to area businesses after the summer is over.

But new rules could keep people from traveling up north.

"Several guests have called and some have cancelled because they say that there's not going to be any doe tags being issued in this area," says Hiawatha Lodge owner Scott Frickson.

That could lead to less hunting tourism in the Northwoods.
