Just wondering who else is getting screwed over on the late gun deer season. I'm sure I'm not alone on this. My end of the year spots that I save for the end of season will be over ran with deer hunters. I just dont understand some of the poor planning this state does with season dates when you hunt deer for like 5 months depending on your location.
Duck season ending at the same time as gun deer
I stand corrected. The rule must be the Saturday before Thanksgiving, which I'd guess is most often the third Saturday. Anyway you cut it, good luck with the change......
I believe that gun season opens the 4th Saturday in November this year. I also believe duck season opened as early as possible this year and deer season is as late as possible, so next year will be better for you.
Wisconsin’s general gun deer hunting season opens the third Saturday in November. There’s no bigger outdoor tradition in the state, and likely the entire U.S. of A.
Good luck getting it changed
Depends on what you hunt for . Some want it early , some late .
That's partially true. The most important part about Season Structure is set by the Feds and also coincides with the Season Structure of the surrounding States. Wisconsin then follows "suit" with that. It's actually a very involved deal. Good luck this weekend!
Most the season framework decisions are made for and by duck hunting groups advising the DNR what they want. If you don't like it, get involved and express your opinion.
