MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced that the state's brief wolf season will end on Wednesday.

The season began two days ago and is set to end tomorrow afternoon, the DNR announced in a press release Tuesday afternoon.

The state divided Wisconsin into six zones for the wolf hunt. Zones 1,3,4 will close to hunting and trapping gray wolves effective 3 p.m. on Feb. 24. The remaining zones will close a few hours earlier on the same day, at 10 a.m.

The DNR initially wanted to schedule a wolf hunt for later in the year, but a judge ordered the agency to schedule the hunt in February.

The Natural Resources Board approved a quota of 200 wolves for the season. Of those, 119 were given to the state and 81 to the Ojibwe Tribes.
