Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources is not happy with the state’s first wolf hunt.
DNR wildlife director Eric Lobner yesterday said he wishes he would have closed the season sooner. Hunters and trappers in the state bagged 216 gray wolves in just three days. DNR’s goal was just 120. Lobner says they ‘could’ve and should’ve’ closed the hunt before Wednesday. Hunters were supposed to have seven days to harvest wolves, but they were so quick to hit their quota that DNR closed the season in just three.
