Wisconsin's wolf hunting season drew 16,672 applicants for the quota of about 250 wolves in the 2013-2014 wolf hunting and trapping season, which beings Oct. 15 and runs through Feb. 28, or until specific quotas are reached in each zone.
State officials set last year's total quota at 201, and when the year was complete, total licensed harvest was 117 wolves, but a total of 243 wolves were killed (including illegal kills, vehicle collisions, and depredation control).
