MADISON, Wis. -

A fifth wolf-hunting zone is closing in Wisconsin, leaving just one open.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said Thursday that hunting and trapping of wolves in Zone 6 covering most of the southern two-thirds of the state will be closing at 5 p.m. Friday.

That leaves just Zone 3 in central Wisconsin open to wolf hunting. The quota in that zone was 18 wolves and seven have been harvested.

The quota in Zone 6 was 18 wolves. The 18th wolf was harvested on Wednesday, which triggered the closing process.

The goal was to harvest 116 wolves during the state's inaugural hunt this year which began Oct. 15 and will close Feb. 28 or when harvest goals are reached.
