MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin's second wolf season starts next week.

The season is scheduled to begin on Oct. 15 and run through Feb. 28. The state Department of Natural Resources could end the season earlier if hunters reach the 251-wolf kill limit.

Hunters killed 117 wolves during the state's inaugural season last year, one more than their limit. The DNR closed the season in December, two months eary.

The DNR has awarded permits to 2,510 applicants through a drawing this year. As of Friday 1,023 of those applicants had purchased a permit.
