WISCONSIN (WAOW) — The week long Wisconsin wolf hunt season has only been open for just over 24-hours at this point.
And, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, in that first 24 hours hunters harvested over a quarter of the quota.
Across all six zones, 52 wolves were harvested. The quota is 200. Only zone four saw no harvests.
Of that quota, 81 wolves are allocate to the Ojibwe Tribes, leaving 119 to the state. This means that 44% of the statewide quota has been met.
Of the DNR's six management zones, the central Wisconsin zone, which includes portions of Adams, Juneau, Monroe, Clark and Eau Claire counties, yielded the most kills at 17.
The season ends on February 28 if the quota is not met before hand. Specific zones can also close before the end of the season if the zone quota is met.
