Poll Pic S930

HAYWARD, Wis. Conditions under which antlerless tags are issued through the Deer Management Assistance Program, recommended by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, were approved Aug. 13 by the Natural Resources Board.

“The approval of these recommendations will provide greater flexibility to DMAP participants to manage habitat on their land for the benefit of wildlife through antlerless deer harvest,” said DMAP Coordinator Bob Nack.

DMAP cooperators enrolled in level two or three will be eligible to purchase reduced-price antlerless tags, following a property visit from DNR staff and a discussion of both short and long-term property goals with landowners. Landowners and department staff will discuss deer harvest strategies aimed at finding a balance between providing for quality wildlife habitat and continuing to ensure an enjoyable deer hunting experience.

DMAP cooperators who purchase antlerless tags in 2014 may transfer these tags to others wishing to hunt on the enrolled property. It is important to note that these tags may only be used within the enrolled DMAP property. Antlerless tags may not be transferred to hunters for more than the $6 face-value price.

DMAP is one of several new programs and changes resulting from a two-year review of Wisconsin’s deer management program. DMAP will give landowners the tools and technical assistance needed to manage their property for deer and other wildlife. The program encourages sound land stewardship practices on private and public land, provides landowners with educational and networking opportunities, and helps improve relationships between landowners, hunters and DNR.

The FAQ feature provides brief responses to a wide variety of deer hunting questions, ranging from deer management unit boundaries to antlerless permits.

MADISON – Bonus antlerless deer carcass tags are available for purchase starting Monday, Aug. 18 at 10 a.m. Antlerless tags will be sold at a rate of one per person per day. Sales will continue until sold out or until the 2014 deer hunting season ends.A list of units and tags available can be found at WDNR website.Tags will be available for purchase through the Online Licensing Center and at DNR licensing sales locations.Deer management unit boundaries have changed as a result of an extensive two-year review of Wisconsin’s deer management program. Deer hunters are encouraged to check the 2014 deer management unit designations map and 2014 Wisconsin Deer Hunting Regulations booklet for information regarding management units.

To help hunters understand the antlerless tag purchasing process, the department is hosting an online bonus antlerless tags chat at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 12. DNR regulations experts will be on hand to answer all tag-related questions. For more information, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keyword “chat.”

In 2014, antlerless carcass tags will be available in 55 county units. Each gun deer, archer and crossbow hunting license will include one antlerless tag. This antlerless tag will be valid in county units within the Central Farmland and Southern Farmland zones.

Those who wish to harvest an additional antlerless deer must purchase a unit and zone-specific bonus antlerless deer carcass tag ($12 for residents, $5 for 10 and 11 year-olds, and $20 for adult non-residents). These tags will be specific to public or private land – hunters will need to be aware of which land type they plan to hunt before purchasing an additional bonus antlerless tag.

Nineteen county units, in whole or portion, have been designated as buck only in 2014 to encourage herd growth. Antlerless tags will not be available for purchase in these units. However, qualified members of the U.S. Armed Forces home on furlough or leave, Class A and C disabled permit hunters, and youth hunters ages 10-17 will be allowed to harvest an antlerless deer in buck only units.

Bonus tags for the Northern Forest and Central Forest zones will be available for purchase starting Monday, Aug. 18 at 10 a.m. Tags for the Central Farmland Zone will be available Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. Southern Farmland Zone tags will be available Aug. 20 at 10 a.m. All remaining tags will be available for purchase Aug. 21 at 10 a.m.

Those who purchase a 2014 deer hunting license before Aug. 18 can expedite the tag purchasing process, since hunters must obtain a deer hunting license before they can purchase a bonus antlerless tag.

Remaining tag numbers are updated daily. If a unit is not listed, no tags have been allotted for that unit in 2014. It is important to note that county units with low numbers of available tags will likely sell out quickly.

Hunters are encouraged to check out the frequently asked questions page for more information. The FAQ feature provides brief responses to a wide variety of deer hunting questions, ranging from deer management unit boundaries to antlerless permits.
