The deadline to apply for a wolf harvest license or preference point closes this Sunday, Aug. 1 at 11:59 p.m. Log into your Go Wild account to purchase your $10 application. Applications are also available for purchase at all Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) service centers and license agents. You must apply at least once every three years to retain your preference points.

Applicants successful in the drawing are required to purchase a wolf harvest license ($49 for Wisconsin residents and $251 for non-residents) and will receive their carcass tag in the mail following purchase of the license.

The DNR reminds applicants that license holders who intend to use their license to trap a wolf must have successfully completed a Wisconsin trapper education course or other approved trapper education course (unless exempt from this requirement; see regulations for more details).

As identified in state statute, wolf harvest licenses are issued through an application and two-stage drawing process. The initial drawing is for 50% of the available licenses, which are issued through a random lottery in which all applicants are entered. The remaining 50% of the available licenses are issued based upon the cumulative preference points of applicants, which provides unsuccessful applicants from prior years a greater chance to get a license. Residency status does not influence the drawing.

The 2021 fall wolf season opens Nov. 6 and closes on Feb. 28, 2022, or as wolf harvest zones are closed.
