The inaugural wolf hunting season in Wisconsin has come to a close.
With the end of the hunting day yesterday, the DNR closed the final remaining zone. Zone number 3 was made up of the southern portion of Price County and nearly all of Taylor County and extending west to the Minnesota border.
The first season began back on October 15, and several of the northern zones met their quotas before December. Despite a case in the court system preventing dog use in the hunt, the season is ending several months early.
In all, 116 wolves were harvested in the state, which was the exact quota.
