Wisconsin’s wolf hunt will move forward Monday after an appeals court ruling Friday. A three-judge panel dismissed an appeal by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources seeking to put a Jefferson County judge’s ruling on hold that ordered the state’s wolf hunt to resume this month. The ruling said the Jefferson County Court lacked jurisdiction over a direct appeal at this time. The decision comes as the DNR has already been accepting applications for up to 4,000 permits that may be issued to hunters for the wolf harvest. The Natural Resources Board unanimously approved a quota of 200 wolves, and the hunt is set to be held next week after a drawing of winners Monday.
