Wisconsin 4 day Anterless Season, anyone hunting?

14 posts in this topic

I'm gonna hunt near Somerset tomorrow and Saturday only because the farmer that lets me hunt wants some deer taken off his property. I've bowhunted it quite a bit this fall and I don't believe there are as many deer as he thinks. (Not unlike most of the rest of the state IMO)

I know lots of people were dissapointed with the 9 day season, so is anyone else going to give this a try?

Yep, will do some drives Sat - we moved deer last Sat during muzzleloader season. I managed to kill one with about an 8 inch base - jack pine I believe.

I'll be designated driver, just love walking through the woods with a little snow on the ground - no more freezer room anyways between beef and veni.

Good luck DonBo!

Good news guys, I heard from my father in law over near Ladysmith that the deer are starting to move again. They are seeing both bucks and does and they are moving in the light of day. The past 2 weeks everything went pretty much nocturnal but they saw alot of deer today. I saw 4 at my home in Mn during the daylight hours and saw a few bedded on the way home today as I was driving. Should be a good weekend. Donbo, congrats on your deer in the metro, deer in December in Mn are tough to come by. Good luck out there and be safe!

I went out Saturday and bagged a Doe within the first 10 minutes.

I was near Plum City and saw 10 deer in the first 1/2 hour. total on Saturday 24 deer seen and not another hunter around. If there had been I'm sure I would have seen many more than that. The Population is fine there was just less than optimal conditions this year. High winds and and too mutch standing corn had a lot to do with the bad season. Ask the Bow hunters. the ones i've spoken to saw alot of deer, so that also rules out predation as a cause for fewer deer seen and taken.

My buds pregnant girlfriend got one on our last drive of the day Sat - she was a pumped up emotional rollercoaster, was a great way to end the day.

My old man walked the entire farm I usually gun hunt and saw notta - very few tracks in the snow. The neighbors pheasant hunted some swamp/CRP land and while that usually bumps a deer or two nothing came out.

Think that will be it for me, maybe one more day or two of late season bowhunting.

skee0025 - you get into yote hunting over by Plum City? I know they have a dog hunting crew over there.

Let me get this straight, MN we have an early antlerless in some areas, but in Wisc. it is after the rifle season ? Why don't we adopt that philosophy ?

Some places in Wisc have early and late doe seasons.

My brother-in-law lives over there. He shot a fawn in the early antlerless rifle season & a doe in the T-zone season. He also shot three with his bow including a nice 10 pointer. Figures I bowhunted with him his first two years over there & I shot a fawn for the only deer we got with bow, then this year when he gets it figured out I can't go this year.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
