Board approves kill limit of 275 wolves

MADISON, Wis. -

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' board has approved kill limits for the state's second wolf hunt.

The DNR proposed a quota of 275 wolves, up from 201 in last year's inaugural hunt. The state's Chippewa tribes would be entitled to up to 115 wolves within the ceded territory.

The DNR would issue 2,750 permits, but that may drop to offset the number of wolves the tribes ultimately decide they want. The Chippewa are fiercely opposed to hunting wolves, though, and chose not to kill any of the 85 they were allotted last year.

The Natural Resources Board approved the package unanimously during a meeting Wednesday in Wausau.

The hunt is scheduled to begin in mid-October and run through the end of February or until the kill limits are reached.
