Wisconsin wolf hunters reaching limits

MADISON, WI (AP)--   Wisconsin wildlife officials are poised to close another wolf hunting zone. 

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has divided the state into six wolf hunting zones.

The agency plans to close the far northwestern Wisconsin zone at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The kill limit for the zone is 76 animals. Hunters had taken 72 as of late Tuesday afternoon.

The agency shut down the zone that covers much of far northeastern Wisconsin last week after hunters killed one more wolf than the 28-animal limit.

The hunt began October 15 and will run until hunters reach the 251-wolf statewide kill limit or through the end of February, whichever comes first.
