Big Deer Season Changes Afoot

DNR: Proposed Deer Hunting Rule Changes

Firearms season shortened to 9 days (from 16), and starting after the peak rut.

Muzzleloader shortened to 9 days (from 16) also.

Anterless firearms added: 2 days in October and 8 days in December (Christmas to New Years Day).

Net of 4 days shorter season for firearms (32 down to 28), Urban Zone season lengthened.

Intent is to reduce deer herd by increasing harvest of antlerless.

If passed, will take effect for 2011 season.

The DNR listened to the hunters and now are proposing more deer hunting days. Urban Zone and Archery will have the mid-season breaks removed. Also an additional "Anterless" firearms season will be added the last 8 days of Archery (After Christmas to Archery close). Changes may not take effect until 2012.
