MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- There are only hours left in Wisconsin's wolf hunting and trapping season.

The Wisconsin Department of Resources says the sixth and last zone closes at 5 p.m. Monday.

Zone 3 covers a narrow swath of northwestern Wisconsin that includes portions of Burnett, Washburn, Barron, Chippewa, Rusk, Sawyer, Price and Taylor counties.

The quota for Zone 3 was set at 71 wolves and the closure process was initiated when wolf 64 was killed Saturday.

The DNR has already closed five zones after hunters reached their limits. This season's quota was 135 wolves.

Wisconsin's wolf season was to run through the end of February unless hunters reached their statewide limit.

The 2012-13 season ended two months early on Dec. 23 as well after hunters exceeded their 116-wolf limit by one animal.
