INSTANT SURVEY VOTE ON – POLL s648
Should the State Legislature make hunting and fishing laws without consulting sportsmen or the DNR?

New catch-and-release bass season proposed

pollpicRep. Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc) has authored a bill that would establish a catch-and-release bass season from the first Saturday in March through the Sunday preceding the first Saturday in May in southern Wisconsin.

While many anglers might favor such a change, outdoor writer Dan Durbin wonders what might happen if legislators wanted to change other laws affecting hunting and fishing that sportsmen might not favor.

Hunters register 112,581 deer opening weekend of 2011 season

Enthusiasm for hunting remains high

news1MADISON – More than 600,000 hunters were on their stands Saturday morning eagerly waiting the opening moment of the 2011 gun deer season. By the end of the weekend, a preliminary call-in tally showed hunters registered 112,581 deer over the two day period.

“As I listened to deer hunters over the opening weekend, there is a lot of excitement about the changes implemented this year; particularly the fact that hunters are no longer required to harvest an antlerless deer before harvesting their first buck in the CWD zone,” said DNR Executive Assistant Scott Gunderson. “As we all expected, this change is extremely popular amongst hunters which is important as the DNR wants the hunting public to ‘buy-in’ to our herd management structure.”

“It is also important to remember that harvesting antlerless deer remains an important part of deer management in Wisconsin,” said Gunderson. “I would encourage hunters to keep this in mind as they hunt the remaining days of the traditional season and when they return to the woods during the December statewide antlerless hunt and the Holiday Hunt in the CWD management zone.”

EDITOR’S ADVISORY: This table has been updated to correct miscalculations in the buck harvest. The statewide buck harvest increase was 7 percent and the total harvest increase was 5.8 percent.

A breakdown of the harvest by DNR Region and county (pdf;35 kb) is available in portable document format.

“We want to remind folks that these preliminary numbers come from a staff call-around to deer registration stations this morning,” said Tom Hauge, director of the DNR wildlife management program. “The final opening weekend tally will likely be somewhat larger, when all the registration stubs are entered into the data base over the next couple of months.”

Hunters experienced mixed weather including snow, rain turning to snow and moderate temperatures depending on where you hunted. The 2011 preliminary count was up about 5.8 percent from the opening weekend count of 106,404 from 2010. Preliminary buck harvest statewide in 2011 was 57,977 (54,263 in 2010) and preliminary antlerless harvest was 54,604 (52,141 in 2010).

“This is Wisconsin’s 160th modern era deer gun season. It is a fall, family tradition cherished by over 600,000 hunters. These preliminary numbers are just a small part of the event we know as “opening weekend”. I suspect for every deer reported there are 10 great deer camp stories out there. It appears that this season is well on its way to creating life long memories,” added Hauge.
