The Wisconsin nine-day gun deer hunting season is quickly approaching as it will begin on November 18.
This season there are a few changes that have been made to the hunting process that hunters need to be aware of. The changes for this season include, hunters are no longer required to validate their deer tags, attach tags to harvested deer, or keep deer tags with the meat. Even though these changes have been made to the hunting process, hunters must still carry proof of a valid deer tag in the field and register their deer after harvesting.
In an effort to inform hunters of the new changes in the Wisconsin hunting process and highlight the upcoming deer hunting season , Governor Scott Walker and the Department of Natural Resources Secretary Dan Meyer came together to make an informative video. The video can be found here:https://www.facebook.com/governorscottwalker/videos/1915253411825226/.
“Hunting is a special tradition here in Wisconsin, bringing together hunters from across the state and beyond and inspiring fun while also supporting our local communities,” said Governor Walker. “We hope all our hunters have a safe and successful hunting season this year. Good luck out there!”
