Special Plum Island deer hunt

You may have a chance to bag a deer on Plum Island if you apply for a special use permit. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is partnering with the Wisconsin DNR to continue its implementation of the Nuisance Deer Control Program on the island. This is the third year that the deprivation hunt is planned and it's to help meet the deer population goals of Plum Island.


Each year the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and area biologists determine a proper harvest goal. Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Assistant Manager David Bolin says its set at 30 again, which has been accomplished once. 



Bolin says there’s a real close coordination with those hunting on the small island with special permits, so that they don’t accidentally over-harvest. You must be at least 18 years old to apply and the application period ends on Wednesday, September 8th. You can learn more about the application process here
