Hunters getting outdoors

Hunters in Door and Kewaunee counties are finding no trouble social distancing while trying to get their elusive buck or doe. As of the Wisconsin DNR’s last update, hunters have harvested 580 deer in Door County and 471 in Kewaunee County. About a quarter of those in each county came during the youth deer gun hunt weekend, which took place on October 10th and 11th. The others have come during the current archery and crossbow periods. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says the harvest has been normal so far, but he has noticed more hunters going out into the woods.

Archery and crossbow deer season goes until January 3rd while the gun hunt period is set for November 21st through the 30th. Hunters are hoping for a more successful year in the woods with hunters with the 2019 buck harvest the lowest it has been since 2011 in Door County and 2013 in Kewaunee County.
