New deer regulation goes into effect before nine-day hunt

MADISON - A change to group hunting laws has passed with the signing of Wisconsin Act 100 on Nov. 11. State law now prohibits the use of a junior antlerless carcass tag under the gun deer group hunting regulation.

Junior Antlerless Carcass Tags may only be filled by the youth to whom they are issued, and may not be filled by another member of the hunting party.

The 2015 Deer Hunting Regulations pamphlet was completed in advance of the proposed law, and will not reflect these changes. Online regulations<http://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/pubs/wm/WM0431.pdf> have been updated, and individuals are encouraged to use the online regulations pages or contact Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff with any questions.
