Wisconsin wolf hunters and trappers head into the first open weekend of the season with just a handful of the animals harvested.
The DNR opened the 2nd state wolf season on Tuesday. Their goal this year is to harvest 251 wolves, and as of last night, 8 animals were registered.
The state is broken down into six zones, with Lincoln County falling into 3 of the six. Half were registered in Zone 2, which includes western Lincoln County and land to the north. The Quota in Zone 2 is 28.
No wolves have been registered in zone 4 which is eastern Lincoln County east to the UP border. Zone 6 which is largely southern Wisconsin as far north as Highway 64 had 2 wolves.
Once a particular zone quota is reached, the DNR will announce that zones closure for the season. Otherwise the season runs through February.
