MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) Policy Board has started the process of revising the state’s wolf hunt rules.

Board members are considering whether to ban hunting at night, and also shorten the window for registering kills.

The proposals come after hunters blew pat the quota in February, which forced the DNR to end the season three days early.

The department may also create zone-specific tags instead of statewide ones.
