Early deer hunt in Wisconsin
The DNR wants to make sure hunters are aware of changes in the hunt this year. DNR Public Affairs Manager, Greg Matthews, says the changes include larger "herd reduction zones" rather than the familiar "cwd eradication zones."
Along with that comes the "earn-a-buck" program, once again. For the past two seasons, hunters were allowed to shoot both sexes, but doe to buck ratios the DNR asked for didn't materialize, and the state returned to the "antlerless only" harvest for the early hunt.
