MADISON, Wis. -

A fourth wolf-hunting zone is closing in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said hunting and trapping of wolves in Zone 5 covering parts of central Wisconsin will be closing at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

With that closing, only Zone 3 and Zone 6 remain open to wolf hunting.

The DNR said it expects Zone 6 to close soon as it is one wolf away from meeting its quota. The DNR encourages hunters to check daily for updates.

The quota in Zone 5 was 23 wolves. The 23rd wolf was harvested on Monday, 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.
