This is 100% wrong. Not sure what season you're refering too but in any case it's just wrong. The zone has reached or gone over quota in every season. So saying "only 37" is missleading, it's the case because that's the maximum the law would allow.

In the 20-21' season they got 53 in zone one. 86% were taken with the aid of dogs. The quota (31) was reached in 24 hours, but total havest exceeded quota because the law requires 24 hour notice before the season offically closes. That's right, 70% over quota in zone 1 in 2 days.

In the 14-15' season, which began on oct. 15th, the quota was reached in 4 days and NO wolves were taken with the aid of dogs. The quota was 33. 36 were havested. Most were taken in traps.

I say that this shows there are many more wolves than estimated. If you want to check these numbers or do more reading the reports are available here: https://dnr.wisconsin.gov/topic/hunt/wolf/index.html

Also, the picture you posted was in several newspapers back in 2019. Is that your picuture or one you scabbed off the net? You didn't say. Anyway, something about that pic never made sense to me. It was reported as being taken in Wisconsin at a bear bait site. The baiting site pictured shows a metal barrel for bait. Using any metal container for bear bait is illegal in Wisconsin.... kind of makes you go Hummmmmm.....
