Madison, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Another wolf hunting zone has closed in Wisconsin after reaching its quota.

Zone 5, which reaches from southern Chippewa County to northern Marquette County, will close at 9am on Wednesday, December 12th after its quota of 23 wolves was reached.

“The harvest trend in Zone 5 has been steady prior to the deer season, but has slowed down since then. Now with the quota achieved we will close the zone to any additional harvest,” said Kurt Thiede, DNR Lands Division Administrator.

Zones 3 and 6 are still open for the wolf season, however, hunters and trappers are urged to watch zone 6 closely because the zone is within one wolf of its quota.

With the two zones left, only 8 more wolves can be harvested in the Wisconsin wolf season. 106 wolves have been harvested so far during the 2012-2013 wolf season in Wisconsin.
