Wisconsin’s DNR goes against Natural Resources Board, reducing wolf hunt quota

The battle over Wisconsin’s wolf management appears to be far from over.

This week, the Department of Natural Resources set the statewide fall wolf hunting quota at 130 wolves, which goes against the 300-wolf quota approved by the Natural Resources Board in August. 

The DNR developed a statewide wolf management plan in 1999 calling for a population goal of 350 wolves.  Wolves have since been back on the Endangered Species List until they were removed again last October.
