Bow season for deer hunting begins Saturday

Your first chance of getting a trophy buck or doe begins this weekend across Wisconsin. Saturday marks the first day of the archery and crossbow deer hunting season, with subsequent seasons specific to hunters with disabilities and youth coming up in the weeks ahead. Licenses cost between $5.00 for first-time archers to $24 for those returning to the sport. Because of the health of the deer population in Door and Kewaunee counties, DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says there are some things local hunters can take advantage of that others in different portions of the state can not do.

The archery/crossbow season for deer hunting ends in January and runs concurrently with the disability, youth, muzzleloader, and regular gun seasons. If you are hunting in a tree stand this weekend, Kratcha urges you to take extra precautions, like wearing a full body harness to protect yourself.
