Wisconsin wildlife officials have closed two more wolf hunting zones.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has divided the state into six wolf hunting zones.
The agency closed 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.
Another zone was also closed Wednesday after the DNR received notification that 33 wolves had been killed in a zone with a harvest quota of 34. The zone includes most of Adams County and portions of Juneau, Wood, Jackson, Clark, Chippewa and Eau Claire counties.
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 Oct. 15 and will run until hunters reach the 251-wolf statewide kill limit or through the end of February, whichever comes first.
