Wisconsin is starting the process to set the rules for the state’s next wolf hunt.
Wisconsin’s Wolf Harvest Advisory Committee is set to meet today. The committee will set the limits for this fall’s wolf hunt. Last year was the first year that hunters could shoot or trap wolves, and they were very successful. Hunters killed or trapped 216 wolves in just three days back in February. The state’s Department of Natural Resources says this year’s wolf limits will likely be lower, because they believe the state’s wolf population is smaller. Wolf hunting season is supposed to begin in November.
