MADISON, Wis. -

Wisconsin's wolf hunting and trapping season has ended.

The Wisconsin Department of Resources closed the sixth and last zone at 5 p.m. Monday.

Zone 3 covers a narrow swath of northwestern Wisconsin.

The quota for Zone 3 was set at 71 wolves and the closure process was initiated when wolf 64 was killed Saturday. Hunters took 69 wolves in that zone.

The DNR earlier closed five zones after hunters reached their limits. This season's quota was 135 wolves higher than last season.

Wisconsin's wolf season was to run through the end of February unless hunters reached their statewide limit of 251 wolves.

The 2012-13 season ended two months early on Dec. 23 as well after hunters exceeded their 116-wolf limit by one animal.
