Antlerless deer permit availability 2016
Notice: Antlerless permits levels are undetermined at this time while the County Deer Advisory Councils finalize their recommendations. A Farmland Zone antlerless deer carcass tag is included with the purchase of a license for hunting deer and will be available for selection after June 15th. If you have already purchased a license for hunting deer, you will be able to select the unit and land-type of your Farmland Zone permit through your DNR account online after June 15th. Once you have selected your Farmland Zone antlerless permit, you may print this carcass tag from your DNR account on-line, get a printed copy at your local WDNR Service Center, or visit a license agent which will require a $2 processing fee. Bonus antlerless permits will go on sale starting August 15th.
Where available, bonus antlerless permits may be purchased at the rate of one permit, per person, per day until the unit is sold out or the hunting season ends. Although permits will not be weapon or season specific, they will be unit and land-type (public or private) specific. At purchase, you will be asked to identify the deer management zone and unit and whether you want the permit to be valid for public or private lands. In order to hunt antlerless deer on private lands enrolled in the Managed Forest Law and Forest Crop Law lands programs designated as open to public hunting as well as Voluntary Public Access lands, you must have a valid public land antlerless permit.
