Madison, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has closed Wolf Harvest Zone 6 to hunting and trapping of gray wolves effective 5 p.m., Friday, December 14.
Wolf Harvest Zone 6 is the fifth zone to be closed this season. The harvest of wolves currently remains open only in Zone 3. The department will continue to closely monitor the harvest in that zone.
Wolf hunters and trappers should check daily to determine when the zone is closed.
The state wolf harvest quota for Zone 6 was set at 18 wolves and the closure process was initiated when the 18th wolf was harvested on Dec. 12, 2012. Wolf hunters and trappers are advised that they can continue to pursue wolves in Zone 3.
Seven wolves out of the zone’s quota of 18 have yet to be harvested.
