MADISON (AP) — A wolf hunt in Wisconsin would be created under a bill that has passed the state Legislature.

The Assembly passed the measure early Wednesday morning despite objections from Democrats who argued concerns of experts about the need for such a hunt and the way it was organized under the bill.

The bill would establish a hunting and trapping season that would run from mid-October through the end of February. The Department of Natural Resources would be allowed to determine how many licenses to issue.

Wisconsin wolves came off the federal endangered species list last year. The state is now free to manage the wolves as they see fit.

The bill previously passed the Senate and now moves to Gov. Scott Walker.
