Preparing for 2019 Wisconsin gun deer season

But before you head out this year the Wisconsin DNR has some reminders for you, specifically when hunting on public land:
-If you want to leave trail cameras up they need to be labeled with a customer number or name
-Tree stands and ground blinds cannot stay up overnight
-A ground blind must have 144 inches of blaze orange/pink during gun deer seasons
-Depending on if it’s a state park or county property there may be special regulations
-The deer hunting regulations have more information on public land hunting and general regulations

Just a few more safety tips to make sure to wear blaze orange, bring a cell phone, let people know where you are going and when you plan to return.
