MADISON — Wisconsin’s traditional nine-day gun deer season is set to begin in less than two weeks.

The season is scheduled to begin statewide on Saturday, Nov. 19 and will run until Sunday, Nov. 27, once again spanning the Thanksgiving weekend. Hunters killed 205,125 deer during the nine-day season last year.

This year’s season will extend to Dec. 7 in all metro subunits.

Hunters also can take part in a statewide antlerless-only hunt from Dec. 8 to Dec. 11 and in a holiday antlerless hunt in select counties in the southern two-thirds of the state from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1.
