Wolf Hunt To Resume In WI In 2021

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says it will resume Wisconsin’s wolf hunt next November. The U.S. Interior Department announced in October that gray wolves would be removed from the federal endangered species list across the lower 48 states. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to officially remove protections in January, returning wolf management to states and tribes. When not listed as endangered, Wisconsin’s wolf season typically begins the first Saturday in November and runs through the last day of February. However, the DNR said Friday that more time is needed to develop a science-based harvest quota and engage the public on the development of a new wolf management plan.
