Wisconsin wolf hunt: No licenses issued, DNR says

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on Wednesday, Oct. 27 announced that licenses have not been issued to state hunters and trappers for the fall 2021 wolf hunt.

The decision follows a circuit court's ruling, which prohibited the DNR from implementing the wolf harvest law.

In accordance with the court order and the department’s ongoing plans, the DNR will continue working toward promoting the rules and the completion of a wolf management plan to guide management decisions.
