The fall deer hunt is just around the corner – visit dnr.wi.gov keyword “deer” and get ready for another season in the woods.
Bonus tags will be sold at a rate of one per person per day until sold out or until the 2016 deer hunting season ends.
For a list of units with bonus tags available for purchase, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keywords “bonus availability.” These and all other deer hunting licenses and tags are available online through the Go Wild website, gowild.wi.gov, or at any of more than 1,000 Go Wild license sales locations.
Hunters will need to know the deer management zone, unit, and determine whether they will hunt on public or private land in order to purchase unit-specific bonus tags.
As a reminder, Farmland (Zone 2) antlerless tags are now available for distribution. Depending on the deer management unit, one or more Farmland (Zone 2) antlerless deer tags are included with the purchase of each gun and archery deer hunting license.
