Wisconsin gun deer season opens Saturday

Opening day is Saturday, Nov. 18 and hunters will be flocking to Florence in hopes of bagging that trophy buck. There have been a few changes to regulations this year.

Validation and tagging is no longer required, but hunters must still carry proof of a hunting license and deer tags. Keep in mind that even with electronic forms of proof of deer tags available, hunters will need the unique tag number to begin the harvest registration process.

North of Highway 64, ground blinds and tree stands may be left out overnight on DNR-managed lands; visit dnr.wi.gov and search “hunting regulations”.
