WI non-resident bowhunting?

Recommended Posts

bmc

My dad and I are looking at bowhunting WI next fall, in the 60B unit. From looking at the WI DNR pamphlet, we can buy our non-res license over the counter and that includes a buck tag and a doe tag at $160 and addt'l doe tags are $2 a piece? It looks like we could shoot a buck first and then a doe or vice versa? I turkey hunted this area last spring and the landowners I talked to gave me the impression that they have too many deer and need to get rid of some! grin.gif

When does the pre-rut and actual rut start in this area?

Brian,

I hunt Wisconsin every year, but only with a rifle during the last few years. $160 gets you an either sex tag and an antlerless tag. You will need to make sure that 60B is not earn a buck (then you would have to shoot an antlerless first) and don't plan any trips during the T-zone (antlerless only with the rifle). Pre-rut and rut should coincide with our area pretty well. I see your Dad occasionally and I can fill him in or maybe we might have to chase some 'gills this winter. Give me a call some time.

Brian, Jason prtetty much nailed it. Former ranger myself from Lawrence Lake area. You want to be in the woods from the beginning of Nov to mid nov for the rut. Thats when I seem to see the most action. I hunt in 59a and 23 just east of where you will be.

Unit 60B Was not Earn A Buck this year, if that does not change next year, you will get a buck tag, and an anterless tag. Bonus anterless tags are unlimited. $2 each.

This unit MAY be EAB next year. If it is, you will need to shoot an anterless deer first. When you register this deer you are given a stamp that gives you the right to harvest a buck.

Wisconsin tags are over the counter.

Hope this helps.

I usually hunt 7 to 9 days during the last 2 weeks of the WI season. IMO it's the best time a bow hunter can be in the woods.

metrojoe, are you talking about the last two weeks before it closes for rifle season or the two weeks basically from Christmas through the end that first week in January?

Good point. I was talking about the last 2 weeks of the bow season before the firearm season opens. Although late season can be good also. I'm just to caught up in the hardwater season by then.

That's what I thought you meant, but I'm gun hunting here then.

I'm struggling with whether I should just concentrate of fishing or if I want to make one more bow trip to WI. I know the fishing will be more productive & I love it, but it's not bowhunting.

      Both are correct - New Ulm!   DL

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.
