MADISON - A December four-day antlerless hunt will give hunters an additional opportunity to pursue antlerless deer Dec. 10-13.

All deer hunters with a valid antlerless tag for the county and land type they are hunting, except qualified U.S. Armed Forces members and Class A and C disabled permit holders, may only harvest antlerless deer during the four day gun season. The "holiday" gun deer hunt will not be offered in 2015. The archery and crossbow season will remain open through Jan. 3 statewide, and runs through Jan. 31 in metro sub-units; however, no archery buck hunting is allowed during the December four-day antlerless gun season. All hunters except waterfowl hunters are required to wear blaze orange clothing during any open firearm deer hunt.

Hunters asked to participate in online Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey

The Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey will remain active until all deer seasons have ended, and wildlife managers ask that hunters submit a report of what they saw during their time in the field. This information will provide valuable data used to improve population estimates for Wisconsin's deer herd and other species.

For additional information, search keywords "deer hunter wildlife."
