Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

CWD sampling plan in place for 2015-16 deer hunting season

MADISON, Wis. - In cooperation with local businesses, the Wisconsin
Department of Natural Resources will collect samples for chronic wasting
disease surveillance testing during the 2015 archery and gun hunting
seasons.
Although all deer will be registered electronically this year, DNR will
continue to offer free chronic wasting disease testing to hunters. While the
Barneveld Service Station will be closed to CWD testing during the archery
season, sampling hours have been extended at the Black Earth Service Station
to provide testing during business hours Monday through Friday throughout
the fall hunt. Both the Barneveld and Black Earth locations will be open for
testing during the nine day gun deer hunt.
The department works closely with a number of private businesses throughout
the southern portion of the state to offer sampling, and has also added new
self-service kiosks at select locations. Kiosks are open around the clock
and sampling materials and tools to remove heads are available onsite.
24/7 self-serve kiosks can be found at the following locations:

  *   Black Earth DNR Sampling Center - 4738 HWY 78, Black Earth,
608-767-2090;
  *   Richard Bong Recreation Area - 26313 Burlington Rd., Kansasville,
262-878-5600; and
  *   Kettle Moraine State Forest - S91 W39091 State Road 59, Eagle,
262-719-1067
"Many hunters value having their deer tested for CWD, and we hope our
network of cooperators and new kiosks provide an easy and convenient way to
do so," said Julie Widholm, DNR CWD operations biologist. "Since this is a
pilot year for the kiosks, we welcome any feedback on how well these work."
For more information regarding chronic wasting disease in Wisconsin, visit
dnr.wi.gov and search keyword
"CWD<http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/wildlifehabitat/regulations.html>." Information
regarding collection stations will be available throughout the deer hunting
season via the DNR website.
Electronic Registration
All harvested deer will be registered electronically in 2015. Hunters have
three options for registering their deer:
*         online at
gamereg.wi.gov<https://app.wi.gov/gamereg/wildlife/harvest>;
*         electronically at a participating in-person registration
station<http://prodoasext.dnr.wi.gov/inter1/pk_cwd_regpub$.startup>; or
*         via telephone at 1-844-GAME-REG (1-844-426-3734).
Registration via telephone requires callers to enter the first three digits
that correspond to the county of harvest. It is important to remember that
only one digit needs to be entered for each letter. For example, Crawford
County would be entered as 2-7-2 for C-R-A. The registration system will ask
for clarification if counties have a similar abbreviation.
A link to the electronic registration system is also available through the
Pocket Ranger application<http://dnr.wi.gov/mobileapps/> for mobile devices.
