MADISON (WKOW) – Wisconsin's second wolf hunt season starts next week.
The season is scheduled to start on October 15 and run through February 28 but the state Department of Natural Resources says the season could end earlier if hunters reach the 251-wolf kill limit.
During the state's inaugural season last year, hunters killed 117 wolves, one more than their limit. The DNR closed the season two months early.
The agency awarded permits to 2,510 applicants through a drawing this year. As of Friday, 1,023 of those applicants have already purchased a permit.
