MADISON — Wisconsin wildlife officials will start deciding this week which hunters and trappers will get a wolf permit.

The Department of Natural Resources has set this year's quota at 275 wolves. The state's Chippewa tribes have laid claim to 24 wolves, leaving 251 available for non-tribal hunters and trappers. The DNR has established a 10-to-1 permit-to-wolf ratio, which means the agency will issue 2,151 permits.

A total of 12,108 hunters and trappers have applied for a permit, down from 17,377 applicants for last year's inaugural hunt. The DNR will award the permits through a lottery set for Thursday. Applicants not selected earn a preference point that improves their chances in next year's drawing.
