MADISON -- The 2011 Fall Hunting and Trapping Forecast (PDF, 6.5 MB, 48 pages) is now available. Hunters, trappers and wildlife enthusiasts will find information on upcoming season structures, deer research and wildlife populations, district hunting outlooks and much more.
Chronic Wasting Disease Management Zone hunters will find the latest information on CWD management and seasons and a new website www.knowcwd.com (exit DNR). The website has been created to keep hunters and landowners up to date with the latest information available on CWD science, management and impacts. The new website includes a message on CWD from racecar driver and deer hunter, Matt Kenseth.
Hunters will also be seeing a new fall seasons theme in 2011 on television, billboards, in hunting publications and on the knowcwd.com website, called "Hunt. Harvest. Help."
There is also a good luck message to hunters and trappers from DNR Executive Assistant, Scott Gunderson, known to many simply as "Gundy."
"As we enter this special time of year, I want to wish everyone who enjoys Wisconsin's great natural resources, including our wildlife, the best of seasons, the best of luck and a reminder to be safe in all that you do."
