Extra deer tags available starting Monday for hunters in western WI

Posted:

Western Wisconsin (WQOW) - If you live or hunt in western Wisconsin, you can purchase extra antlerless harvest tags starting on Monday.

Chippewa County is the only county in the state where hunters do not automatically get an antlerless permit when they purchase their license. 

Hunters in northern Chippewa County will be able to purchase an antlerless tag on Monday. That's because northern Chippewa County is in Northern Forest Zone 1.

Hunters in southern Chippewa County, along with all of Eau Claire and all counties to the west will be able to purchase extra tags starting Tuesday. Those counties are in the Central Farmland Zone 2. 

Bonus tags are $5 for anyone under age 12, $12 for residents and $20 for nonresidents.
