Deer hunters in Kewaunee and Door counties have another opportunity to hit the woods between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day this year.
An antlerless-only holiday hunt is being offered in 17 farmland units from Dec. 24 through Jan. 1 at the request of County Deer Advisory Councils. The units have been identified as having high deer numbers in need of antlerless harvest to slow overall herd growth.
Hunters may fill any unused antlerless tags in their proper deer management zone, county and land type. Any unit where the holiday hunt is not offered will be open for archery and crossbow hunting, and bucks may be taken.
Any legal firearm, crossbow or archery equipment may be used during the statewide antlerless-only and holiday hunts.
