MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Duck season in northern Wisconsin is about to get under way.
The northern zone season opens Sept. 25. State Department of Natural Resources biologists say waterfowl game species are healthy and abundant. They say a rainy summer made for excellent brood-rearing habitat.
The DNR recommends hunters scout for good wetland conditions, noting hunters who scout harvest more than twice the ducks than hunters who don't.
The northern zone season runs through Nov. 23. The southern zone season opens on Oct. 2. It closes on Oct. 10, then reopens on Oct 16 and runs through mid-December.
