Hunters register 134,772 deer opening weekend across state

Though hunters define success in different ways, 134,772 deer were harvested and registered in Wisconsin during the opening weekend of the nine-day deer season.

The tally is based on preliminary call-in numbers collected from registration stations by Department of Natural Resources (DNR) staff.

“Congratulations to all hunters who were able to harvest a deer opening weekend of the nine-day. Though getting a deer is often the ultimate goal of the hunt, it is the whole experience of getting out there with friends and family that keeps us coming back each year,” said DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. “I hope those who weren’t able to get a deer during the season opener will get back out there and enjoy the rest of the days of the season.”
