Juneau county reports
Totally understand and respect you for your information.. I am just trying to get a feel for the hunting in the county.. I mainly fish the Rock and only turkey hunted a few times in the area..My neighbor hunts The Necedah wild life area and they have seen alot of wolves over the last 5 years...I grew up hunting Trempuleau county all on private land... Hunted Sauk with my son for the youth hunts with friends.. From a deer numbers area the Sauk county west would be awesome but very pricey...Same with the western part of the state..I am also looking at it as a investment also for the family..I wish you the best of luck and you ever need a fishing report on the rock shoot me a message..
When I say we had wolves, I mean I saw, heard or found sign of them fairly often when I was there out and about. I have not heard or saw any for a couple years now. I don't mean to imply they are no longer there, which is most likely not the case, only that I have not encountered anything for some time now.
If your intent is get away from wolves I don't know that buying land in Sauk county is going to meet your goal. There is a pack in Columbia county, I'm sure there is some presence in Sauk as well. They move around, a lot.
Not trying to tell you what do do. Just trying to pass along my experience.
Thank you sir... That's is my worries the wolves...I have see tracks in Buckhorn state park and behind my mobile home ...my friend has land in Sauk county... Deer heaven ... Seeing alot of bucks on the move in that area .
My property is south of 21 west of 80. Most years there seems to be a good number of deer along with a decent buck or 2. I don't run cameras so no real proof but tracks and activity while on stand. We had wolves pretty bad a few years back and that made it tough with deer going nocturnal.
Food plots made a difference for me. I've also done some hinge cutting to promote ground cover. My plots get hammered but I don't see herds of deer, they are there though.
There are a lot of factors that go into just seeing deer, and whatever amount of deer you think you should see. I'd give it some thought before you buy more land. IMO. Good luck!
Just a question for you gentlemen... What part of the county are you hunting? I have a place south of 21 on hwy g.. I don't see alot of deer in the area... I am looking for hunting land my wife would like to stay in the area if possible... Any help would be awesome... good luck be safe..
Hunted last week Thursday to Sunday morning. The action slowed a little when it warmed up later in the week. I saw a large buck following a doe and grunting, sounded like he was pleading with her to stand or run. Kinda funny. They came in to 40 yards but were in the brush and no comfortable shot for me. If memory serves I saw 2 other spikes, an 8pt, a single doe fawn twice and a single doe. I did see deer from the tree after hours and some glimpses of chasing at a distance. Deer were definitely on the move. I did see one scrape in my travels to and from stands. This concludes my bow season as I am unable to hunt this weekend. Will be up for rifle on that Friday. Good luck everyone.
We hunt Juneau county but our new property is just over the line in Sauk county. Couldn’t find the Sauk county report thread. Hunted there 10/29-11/5. Saw plenty of rutting activity and chasing. Ended up with a nice buck. Not enough action on the cameras in Juneau County so never tried it up there this year.
I also hunted from 10-29 thru 11-7 very little rutting activity. Saw many does each day with out any bucks following or harassing. On the 7th the day i had to leave we saw the first buck following a doe. will be back up Thursday
Hunted alot between 10/27 and 11/7. Saw a few little bucks. One little 7 pointer with its nose down walked thru the plot right past a doe that was eating. Apparently she wasn't ready. Didn't see many does which was unusual. Saw more little bucks. 11/6 morning a dandy one came trotting thru around the edge of the slashings looking for a date. I did get him to stop with grunts and bleats but he didn't come toward me. Then he kept up his mission. Need to get a stand closer to the edge of the slashings for next bow season. Could have had him with a rifle, but I guess that's part of bow hunting. That's it for me for bow season.
Hunted last week Wednesday to Sunday morning. I saw 1 spike on 2 occasions, another spike, a decent 8pt and a single adult doe over those 5 days. No sign of rut activity of any kind.
