DISABILITY GUN DEER HUNT OCTOBER 1-9
A special gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities. There is an application process to participate, and the deadline to apply with the DNR was Sept 1. If they have applied, they must purchase a standard Gun Deer License. Note: There is no special disabled deer hunting license for this hunt.
YOUTH GUN DEER HUNT OCTOBER 8-9
A special 2-day hunt for youth hunters age 15 and under. Youth hunters will purchase their standard Junior Gun Deer License which is valid for all gun seasons. Any unused harvest authorizations after this 2-day hunt weekend may still be used during the remaining gun deer hunts.
ARCHERY/CROSSBOW DEER SEASON IS HERE.
Hunters who wish to hunt with both traditional bow and crossbow will need both the Archery Deer and Crossbow Deer licenses. They can purchase one of them at regular price and purchase the "upgrade' to use the other weapon for an additional $3. Please note: No additional carcass tags are issued with an upgrade license.

Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorizations are now on sale for all units that have permits remaining. Customers may purchase one harvest authorization per day. They are required to indicate the zone (Forest Zone 1 or Farmland Zone 2), deer management unit (county), and land type (public or private).
NOTE: SOME DEER MANAGEMENT UNITS ARE "SPLIT" BY HABITAT TYPE
Ten Deer Management Units (Adams, Chippewa, Clark, Eau Claire, Jackson, Juneau, Marinette, Monroe, Oconto and Wood), are divided between Forest and Farmland Management Zones. If the customer selects one of these counties, ask which area of the county they will be hunting in… Forest Zone or Farmland Zone. They will need the correct zone listed on their harvest authorization. SELECT HERE for a detailed map.

CAN'T FIND A LICENSE IN THE PRODUCT LIST?
If a license does not show on the product list, there there is most likely a reason. Here are a few places you can look to find out:
- Check their Active Products and Points. They may have already purchased that license.
- Check the Cart button. The customer may have begun a transaction online, and it may be waiting in the shopping cart to be purchased.
- There may be a cheaper option such as a New Buyer, senior, or combo license. Example: Spousal fishing is not offered to seniors. It's cheaper to purchase separate.
