Antlerless deer hunting prohibited this year in 18 deer management units in Northern Wisconsin

SPOONER, WI. -- Archery and gun hunters are reminded that shooting an antlerless deer is not allowed by most hunters in 18 regular deer management units and the Council Grounds State Park in Northern Wisconsin. Archery and gun antlerless deer carcass tags are not valid in units 7, 13, 28, 29A, 29B, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 49A, 52, and 52A.

"We are trying to re-build the deer herd in these areas, and based on citizen comment we received at our public deer herd status meetings this past spring, we are allowing zero antlerless harvest in these units," said Michael Zeckmeister, Regional Wildlife Biologist.

There are only a few exceptions to this zero antlerless harvest in these units, Zeckmeister added, and these include certain disabled hunting permit holders, Armed Forces members, and first year hunter education graduates. He also reminds all hunters to check their Deer Hunting Regulations booklet and make sure they know which unit they are hunting in and know the season structure for these units.
