The wolf 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.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin wildlife officials are poised to close two more wolf hunting zones.

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 DNR plans to close the west-central Wisconsin zone at the same time. Hunters have killed 33 of the 34-wolf quota.

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.
