Hunters and trappers interested in participating in Wisconsin's wolf hunting and trapping season must apply for a permit BEFORE August 1, 2013. The permit application fee is $10 and applications can be purchased from authorized license agents, over the Internet through the Department of Natural Resources
Online Licensing Center
or by phone at 1-877-945-4236 toll free.
For the 2013-14 season, one half of available permits will be issued randomly among all permit applications and the second half will be issued through a cumulative preference point drawing. Successful applicants will be notified by letter, likely in mid to late September. Applicants who are not successful in the drawing will be awarded a preference point toward future drawings.
