No pattern existed among the four wolves killed by hunters on Wisconsin's first day of its wolf season Monday.
Two male wolves and two female wolves were killed, one each in four separate wolf hunting zones.
A male was the first wolf shot, taken at 7:15 a.m. in Zone 3, Rusk County.
Next was a female, shot in Vilas County in Zone 2, taken at 8:30 a.m.
A female followed at 4:30 p.m., felled in Zone 1, Iron County. Finally, a male was shot at 6:15 p.m. in Zone 5, Eau Claire County.
Ages of the animals are unknown at this time.
The hunt ends Feb. 28. It could close sooner if a statewide limit of 116 wolves is met. Also there are zone limits.
According to the Associated Press, 31 animals remain in the far northwest quota, 19 in the far northeast, 17 in the mid-northwest, 22 in the central, 5 in the mid-northeast and 18 in the south.
