Antlerless hunt set for Wisconsin CWD zone - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

Antlerless hunt for Wisconsin CWD zone

FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- The four day antlerless-only deer season started October 14, in Wisconsin's chronic wasting disease management zone.

The disease zone makes up about 9,000 square miles in southern Wisconsin. 

Under state earn-a-buck regulations, hunters must kill an antlerless deer in the zone before they can take a buck. The Department of Natural Resources says earn-a-buck offers the best method for thinning the herd in the disease zone.

This antlerless season gives hunters a chance to qualify early to take bucks.
