MADISON -- Though the muzzleloader deer season ends Dec. 5, hunters still have opportunities remaining this year to harvest a deer.

Hunters statewide can participate in the antlerless hunt that runs Dec. 6 through Dec. 9. Archery hunters can continue pursuing deer during the remaining late archery season that runs through Jan.6, 2013.

Finally, a Holiday Hunt takes place in CWD units of southern Wisconsin starting Dec. 24 and ending Jan. 6, 2013.

Landowners and hunters in CWD units are reminded that there is no CWD landowner hunt this year. This CWD management zone-specific hunt previously enabled landowners and landowner-designated permit holders to hunt on private land in CWD zones from January to March.
