WI wolf hunting, trapping season to end Sunday

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin's inaugural wolf season is set to close Sunday afternoon, as hunters and trappers are on the verge of reaching the statewide quota.

5 of the six wolf-harvest zones were already closed. The last one shuts down Sunday at 5 p.m.

The state Department of Natural Resources says hunters and trappers in Zone 3 are within 1 of the quota. DNR spokesman Kurt Thiede says the agency will close the zone to avoid overharvest.

The wolf harvest quota for Zone 3 was 18 wolves. The 17th wolf was harvested Friday.

The overall goal was to harvest 116 wolves during this year's hunt, which began Oct. 15. It was set to close Feb. 28 or when harvest goals were reached.
