Bonus antlerless deer tags available Aug. 20
By: Wisconsin DNR, Superior Telegram
MADISON — Bonus antlerless deer tags for regular deer management units, and hunting access permits for all state park deer management units, go on sale beginning at noon August 20.
An individual may only purchase one tag or permit per day, and tags and permits will be sold until none remain or the hunting season ends. A list of units and number of tags available can be found on the DNR website (www.dnr.wi.gov/org/caer/cs/BonusAvailability.htm).
Unit-specific antlerless tags cost $12 for adult residents, $20 for adult non-residents and $5 for 10-11 year olds.
The structure of the sale of bonus tags is new for 2011. All units with bonus tags available will go on sale Saturday. In previous years sales have been staggered over the weekend based on whether a deer management unit had an even or odd number.
Tags and permits will be available for purchase through the DNR Online Licensing Center, at DNR licensing sales locations, or by phone toll free at 1-(877) 945-4236.
Purchasing a deer hunting license before Aug. 20 can speed up the process, since hunters must obtain a deer hunting license before they can purchase a bonus antlerless tag or state park access permit.
