Hunters in Wisconsin had a very busy wolf season.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources says hunters and trappers bagged 182 wolves as of yesterday, though that number is expected to go-up. DNR set a non-tribal goal of just 120 wolves. The hunting season got off to a fast start, so fast that DNR pulled the plug just two days into what was supposed to be a seven-day hunting season. This was the first wolf hunting season in Wisconsin since the gray wolf was taken off the Endangered Species list.
