MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- The annual statewide four-day, antlerless-only hunt starts Thursday.
Hunters may fill any unused antlerless tags while hunting in the proper area specified on the tag. In addition, the antlerless-only holiday hunt will be offered in 17-farmland units from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, 2018.
These seasons are used at the request of county deer advisory councils to slow overall herd growth.
Any unit where the holiday hunt is not offered will be open for archery and crossbow hunting, and bucks may be taken.
