MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - Another wolf zone is set to close today.

Wolf Harvest Zone 4 will close tonight at 6 pm. The Department of Natural Resources says 11 of 12 allotted wolves have been harvested in the zone. “Harvest trends in Zone 4 have been steady,” said David MacFarland, DNR large carnivore specialist. “We will be considering harvest trends as we approach quotas in the remaining zones as well. Zone 6 is approaching quota as well. So we urge hunters and trappers to be aware and be sure to check the web or call-in number before heading out.”

That leaves wolf zones 3 and 6 still open for hunting and trapping. The other three zones in the state closed in October after a faster than expected harvest this season.

The DNR says it's your responsibility to know when the zones close, so before you head out to hunt, check the news or call the DNR at 1-855-9653 to see if your region is open.
