Does anyone know where to find the number of bow, crossbow and gun license sales so far in Wisconsin?

However like I said earlier, the inclusion of patron and upgrades confuses it a bit (see notations 1 and 2 at bottom of table).

Stats are from table 17, page 35 from Wisconsin Big Game and Turkey Summary on DNR website.  Stats go back to 1966.

"At the current rate of change, xbow hunters will be higher in numbers than regular bow in only 2-3 years"

Where is your historical data showing there will be a swing of 37,067 (using your numbers) licenses in 2-3 years. To make that statement you have to have the numbers to extrapolate (guess) at the future number.

Bow license numbers down and xbow licenses up, we'll never know how many are converts and how many are new to the season all together because the DNR doesn't provide us that either.  At some point there will be no more converts and fewer people new to the season and the number will plateau, it's anybodies guess when that may happen.

Fish.. but your license numbers would produce a different % which I prefer.

The percentage is the number of xbow licenses divided by total “archery “ licenses (regular bow +xbow licenses.  For 2018: 171,993 xbow / (171,993 + 208,060 regular bow) = 45% of total is xbow.  At the current rate of change, xbow hunters will be higher in numbers than regular bow in only 2-3 years. Another interesting stat is that total archery kill has risen but only very slightly.  However far more bucks than does are now being killed, meaning in total fewer does are being killed.  This makes managing the heard even more difficult even though kill is slightly up.  You can’t necessaripy say that is completely due to the season structure change though.
