Twenty wolves were reported killed during this year’s gun deer hunting season in Wisconsin.

According to the Department of Natural Resources, 18 were killed by hunters with firearms. The other two were taken by trappers using foothold traps.

As of Monday morning, hunters have killed 98 wolves this season.

The wolf hunting and trapping season opened Oct. 15 and will close Feb. 28 or when harvest quotas are reached, whichever comes first.

The DNR set a statewide harvest quota of 116 wolves for non-tribal hunters and trappers.

The 116 wolves were apportioned into six management zones. Two zones were closed in mid-November as wolf kills neared the quotas.
