Hunting regulations and hours

Changes to deer carcass transportation

Effective Oct. 1, 2018, the rules regarding transportation of deer carcasses out of CWD-affected counties will be changing. Hunters should be aware that printed copies of the 2018 Wisconsin Deer Hunting Regulations may no longer be accurate, and should refer to an updated version for the most up-to-date rules.

For more information, visit the DNR Carcass movement restrictions webpage, or contact Scott Karel, Rules and Regulations Specialist at or 608-267-2452.
