State's second wolf hunt could come to a quick close


Eau Claire (WQOW)- Two more zones are set to close Wednesday night as hunters harvest wolves at a brisk pace.

The DNR is closing Zone Five, which covers parts of Eau Claire, Chippewa, Clark and Jackson counties.  The limit in that zone was 34.  So far, hunters have killed 33 wolves in Zone Five.  Zone One in far northwestern Wisconsin will also be shut down.  Another zone was closed last week.

That means only three areas remain open.  The hunt began on October 15th and will run until hunters reach the statewide limit of 251 wolves, or through the end of February, whichever comes first.  At this rate, the state's second hunt will wrap up well before February.
