Door and Kewaunee County deer gun hunters will have another chance starting today to get a deer during the first-ever “holiday hunt” in the area. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources through the request of the County Deer Advisory Councils is looking for more antlerless-only deer being harvested from Christmas Eve through January 1.
Door County Deer Advisory Council Chair Dick Baudhuin earlier this year shared the concern of deer overpopulation in the area.
Seventeen Farmland units in Wisconsin which includes Door and Kewaunee County, allows any legal firearms to be used during the antlerless-only holiday hunts. The state-wide crossbow and archery deer hunting season concludes on January 7.
