Hunting in Wisconsin: 3 Animals To Hunt in the Fall

By    |   Thursday, 04 Jun 2015 04:10 PM

Autumn is about more than leaves changing colors and school starting up again. It is also a perfect time of year to get out into the forests and hunt. Hunting in Wisconsin during the fall gives hunters a chance to try their hand at everything from bagging big game to taking migratory birds before they head south for the winter.

Many animals require a specific permit or tag in addition to a hunting license, so it's important to check with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources hunting regulations to see what you need.

Here's a look at three animals you can target for hunting in the fall:

1. White-Tailed Deer
Deer hunting starts in mid-September when bow and crossbow seasons begin concurrently. These hunts actually extend into the winter, ending in the first week of January.

Wisconsin offers up some special deer hunts later in the fall. An annual two-day Youth Deer Hunt is held on the second week of October. A gun hunt for hunters with disabilities also runs for a week during the first half of October. No hunter may participate in more than one special gun deer hunt in the same calendar year.

2. Bears
Bear hunting is divided four zones (A, B, C and D) across the state. Zone C does not permit dogs to be used in hunting and allows bears to be hunted from mid-September to mid-October.

Hunters can use bait and all other legal methods for luring bears in Zone C. The other three zones do allow dogs for a portion of the bear season. Hunting with dogs only is permitted for a week in mid-September.

Then bait and other legal methods are included for the last two weeks of September and first week of October. Hunting with dogs is then restricted for the final week of the season in mid-October.

3. Game Birds
Pheasants, quail, and Zone B grouse seasons all start on the same date in mid-October. Quail and Zone B grouse seasons end after the first week in December while pheasant hunting lasts through the end of the month. Zone A grouse hunting begins in mid-September and goes through the end of January.
