Wisconsin continued to make national news when on Aug. 11 the Natural Resources Board (NRB) set a quota of 300 wolves for the coming wolf hunt, starting Nov. 6, while the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) had recommended a quota of 130 wolves.

Those opposed to hunting wolves roundly criticized the 300 quota, especially after this year’s hastily organized hunt in February that resulted in taking 216 wolves in less than 60 hours, a culling that was nearly 100 more than the 119 set for non-tribal members and 16 over the 200 total quota.
