Yep, waiting in line in the morning to check in you could smell the whiskey on the hill jacks....a group bragging loud and proud about how they had been up all night and "killed that bottle dead"..staggering around with 12 guage shotguns loaded with slugs...if i cant find private ground i will be quiting hunting!

Actually i have property in the UP of MI. But being a non resident my tags are $138+....then add in the gas for the 500 mile, 1 way, trip. Gets expensive for the chance at a buck only, gamey tasting deer. Then toss in trying to start a youngin' and living a week or two in a tent in Mid Nov. In Northern MI.......

I've hunted public land in several states and other than a very few "bad" days it was good hunting. I think its great that we all have the public land to hunt on. I must admit that I've never hunted in the eastern US.

your braver than to set out on publice land during wisconsin gun season!! the season is only 9 days so the nuts round here shoot at the slightest leaf quivering in the breeze. the rule is shoot it and hope its not a person...

if they decreased the number of deer tags and increased the length of the season it would be a LOT safer.

there wouldnt be that pressure to shoot first and confirm the target later

Yeah, that would worry me. The ones who are there to party AND hunt. when I had a horse, I never rode her during the hunting season.

I had some co-workers that went on a hunt, never talked about the hunt more of the beer they drank at the campsite.

I emiled the DNR here about the short 9 day gun season to change to it to something like what Michigan has when I lived there it was 14 days I think.

But the DNR in Wis. thinks its fair on the 9 days she told me in the email you have three day in Oct.to hunt in the CWD area 13-16 then again Dec.8 - 11
thats their reasoning on the matter.

It doesnt make any sense. Most states control the hunt through the ammount of tags issued not really through the time of the hunt.

I would suggest contacting your state senator or rep. Explain how dangerous the short season is and hiw its better on an economic level for the state to have a longer season and control theharvest by thetags issued.

Contacting the dnr for anything is about as useless as contacting eric holder and asking him to stop selling guns to criminals...
