Some say yes, and some say no. I suppose the only way to navigate this question safely is to point out what some may consider the main differences. In general Wiccans feel free to review different belief systems such as Celtic, Norse, Essene, Gnosis, or Shamanism and then blend together any points that "feel" right into their own personal path. Pure Witchcraft on the other hand, may focus a little more tightly on using Magick and ritual to work with the elemental and Spiritual forces in nature. Regardless, some feel the differences are slight in that Wicca and Witchcraft both work to achieve balance and harmony within nature and self. Many seekers find themselves increasingly drawing upon the wisdom and beliefs of other spiritual beliefs as their knowledge and understanding of them increases. So; they may also consider themselves a Witch and perhaps part Shaman too because they utilize and blend aspects of all three.
