Door and Kewaunee Counties are participating in this year's holiday hunt due to the increasing deer numbers. The holiday hunting season is in effect until January 1st. Only antler-less deer can be hunted during this period. Counties have the option of participating in the holiday hunt if there are excess deer in an area. Chris Kratcha is the Conservation Warden stationed in Sturgeon Bay and he explains how each county decides whether or not to add optional hunting seasons.
Door County also decided to extend the archery season to January 31st because of the excess deer, while Kewaunee County did not.
