Wisconsin (NNCnow.com) The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have closed half of the wolf-hunting zones in the state which have reached their harvest limits.
At 5:00 P.M. on December 2nd the Wisconsin DNR closed zone one which was considered to be one of the highest wolf populated areas including Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland and Sawyer Counties.
The last of the 32 harvested wolves was reported on December 1st.
This leaves three zones still open in the State but the DNR is warning hunters to be aware of harvest limits as zones five, and six are both only one wolf away from reaching their harvest quotas.
Zone three which stretches from Burnett County to Taylor and parts of Price County is also close to its quota with only eight wolves left to be harvested.
The Wisconsin wolf hunting and trapping season started on October 15th and will run until February 28th, 2013 if necessary.
