Statewide antlerless hunt set for Dec. 6-9
Wisconsin's deer hunters' next big opportunity is Dec. 6-9 during the statewide antlerless gun-deer hunt.
State wildlife officials say more than 110 of Wisconsin's 130 deer management units need strong hunting pressure put on antlerless deer to control population size. These units are designated as Herd Control, Earn-A-Buck or Chronic Wasting Disease.
Antlerless deer carcass tags in HC and EAB units are available in unlimited numbers at $2 each.
In regular deer management units hunters will need a unit specific $12 antlerless carcass tag. These are limited in number but are still available in 13 of 16 regular units.
