Holiday hunt for select Farmland Zone units begins Dec. 24

MADISON - Hunters can look forward to additional deer hunting opportunities
during late archery and crossbow seasons, as well as the antlerless-only
"holiday hunt" in select deer management units.

The antlerless-only holiday hunt will be offered in 17 Farmland Zone units
from Dec. 24, 2017 through Jan. 1, 2018. The holiday hunt is offered in
these units based on recommendations from County Deer Advisory
Councils<http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/hunt/cdac.html> where added opportunity to
harvest antlerless deer is offered to help reach antlerless harvest goals
and the county deer population objective.

Hunters may fill any unused antlerless tags in the designated deer
management zone, unit and land type (public or private) printed on each tag.
Only antlerless deer may be harvested in holiday hunt units with any legal
firearm, crossbow or archery equipment. Units where the holiday hunt is not
offered are open for archery and crossbow hunting. Bucks may be harvested
only in non-Holiday Hunt units.

Successful hunters are reminded to register their deer by 5 p.m. on the day
after harvest. Registration can be completed online by searching
"GameReg<http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Hunt/ereg.html>" on the DNR web page or
calling 1-844-426-3734.

Chronic wasting disease sampling
CWD sampling is being offered at various locations throughout southern,
central and northern Wisconsin including both in-person service as well as
self-service options. Self-service kiosks are 24/7 options for hunters to
drop off a deer head to be tested for CWD. The online registration database
now includes within the station type option drop down menu the specification
of self-service kiosks in available counties.

To find sampling station locations and additional information, search
keywords "CWD
sampling<http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/wildlifehabitat/registersample.html>."

Hunters can search for CWD test results individually or view a summary.
Hunters will need a customer ID or CWD sample barcode to search for
individual results. For information, search keywords "CWD results."

Hunters asked to participate in online Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey

The Deer Hunter Wildlife
Survey<http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/wildlifehabitat/wlsurvey.html> will remain
