Preparation is the best way for hunters to get the most out of the upcoming gun deer season. Before Nov. 20, there are a few things you need to have before taking to the field.
To get started, purchase your deer hunting license. Hunters can buy a deer hunting license through the DNR’s GoWild app. Before buying a license, hunters must complete a hunter education course and have a hunter education safety certificate on file.
Here are other ways for hunters to prepare for the hunt:
- Check out the Wild Wisconsin web series for videos, podcasts, and more for Wisconsin hunters.
- Download the DNR’s free Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app to keep public land access, season dates, shooting hours, CWD testing locations, and more all in your pocket.
- Use our Public Access Lands Maps to explore public hunting options across the state.
- Carry this Field Dressing Deer: Pocket Guide for pointers while you’re in the field.
