IS It Worth IT???

9 posts in this topic

Is it worth it for you to spend $160.00 for a non-resident deer tag? I was debating this for the Wisc. Opener...

Depends how bad you really want to hunt. Several years back I hunted by grantsburg and it was great. Shot a nice seven pionter and ended up seeing 50 plus deer that day. Before I shot my buck I had 17 does and fawns walk under my stand, that was a first. Saw one big buck and no shot was available.I would really love to hunt Wisconsin again but I probly would be divorced if I did because of all the days I put in in Minnesota. My nefew and bro-in-law hunt in Wisconsin and live in Minnesota and they dont hunt in Minnesota any more, because of all the deer that they get. So to answer your Question I think yes its worth it. and the deer tend to have this cheese flavor (couldnt resist it.)

Yes it is absolutely worth it. I grew up in Wisconsin. Now that I live in Minnesota I have to pay the non-resident fees anytime I want to hunt there. Theres tons of BIG bucks there. Lots of agriculture so they are eating good. Nothing tastes better than a fat doe from Wisconsin. Do yourself a favor and buy a tag if you have a place to hunt there. Good luck!

Is there any public land worth hunting or is it just like MN? I live only 15 minutes from taylors falls and getting to northern WI would be not too hard.

well my friend's family has some private land in haywood so I was just wondering if it will be worth it is all. I mean, I did just spend over 2,000 on a shotgun set up and have only shot 16 rounds through it... 15 was for sighting it in.. 1 was a missed shot at 10 yards grin.gif

This year I only bought a WI licence(bow)... and didn't buy a MN licence. For me I know of a ton more public land with plenty of deer in WI. For me, its worth the $160...

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
