Hook and Hunting: Antlerless Deer License

Have the urge to get back out hunting?

Well next week is your chance to get the ball rolling.

Antlerless deer applications open up July 15 for the 2019 deer hunting season.

Everyone is allowed to apply for just one license in total and if approved it will cost $5.

Applications can be found online at the DNR website or at stores that already carry deer licenses.

“We look at each deer management unit separately and individually and assign a number of antlerless licenses based on the habitat types there, deer population there, how severe the past few winters have been so that we can try to direct the deer population in a helpful manner,” said Vernon Richardson, wildlife biologist for the DNR.

Any extra antlerless deer licenses will be sold at shops that currently sell deer licenses and online at the DNR website, here.
