MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin is closing the wolf hunt season in two zones in the northeastern part of the state after quotes have been reached.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said Thursday it was closing the zones Friday when hunting and trapping hours end.

The quota for Zone 2, which encompasses the far northeastern corner of the state, was set at 20 wolves and the decision to close it came after 18 were killed.

The quota for Zone 4, which is just to the south of Zone 2, was just five wolves and four have been reported killed.

All of the four other zones remain open.

The hunt began on Oct. 15. It's set to run until hunters kill 116 wolves or until the last day of February, whichever comes first.
