Wolf harvest at 99
More zones near quota

Six-plus weeks into Wisconsin's wolf hunting and trapping season, the harvest stands at 99 wolves and two zones have seen closures.

The DNR closed Wolf Harvest Zones 2 and 4 to hunting and trapping of wolves Nov. 16 as the zones neared quota and gun deer season loomed.

Zone 2 covers most of Vilas and Oneida counties. Zone 4 includes small portions of Oneida, larger portions of Lincoln and Langlade counties and parts of several other counties.

Zone 2 ended its season with hunters and trappers having taken 18 wolves of the 20-wolf quota for the zone.

Of the 99 wolves reported harvested as of 10 a.m. Nov. 29, 31 had come from Zone 1, located in northwestern Wisconsin, putting it very close to its quota of 32. Only three wolves were needed to reach quota in both Zone 5 and Zone 6.

As of 10 a.m., Nov. 29:

Zone Quota Harvest Status

1 32 31 Open

2 20 18 Closed

3 18 10 Open

4 5 5 Closed

5 23 20 Open

6 18 15 Open

All 116 99

Hunters and trappers have 24 hours to report a wolf kill.

The Wisconsin wolf season opened Oct. 15 and is set to close Feb. 28, 2013, or when harvest quotas are met.

The DNR updates the wolf hunting and trapping page of its website with wolf harvest data. Go to and search "wolf."
