MADISON - Many fall hunting and trapping seasons in Wisconsin are just around the corner, and the 2016 Fall Hunting and Trapping Forecast [PDF] is now available.

"I'm always excited to hear our fall forecast is available, because that means it's almost time to grab my gear and head into the woods," said Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp. "The forecast is a great way to get a leg up on other hunters or trappers - we've got season previews for everything from deer to doves."

To view this year's hunting and trapping forecast, visit and search keywords "forecast" or "hunt."
