MADISON — The state Department of Natural Resources' board is poised to adopt kill limits for Wisconsin's second wolf hunt later this month.

The board is scheduled to take up the limits at a meeting in Wausau on June 26. The board will take public testimony during the meeting.

The state's wolf advisory committee has recommended a statewide quota of 275 animals. That's up from 201 for the first season last year. The state's Chippewa tribe elected not to use the 85 tags allotted to them, leaving non-tribal hunters and trappers with a 116-animal quota. They killed 117 wolves in total.

The DNR is expected to publish its final 2013-14 quota recommendations next week. The agency estimated as many as 834 wolves roamed the state over the winter of 2012-13.
