I didn't even get a deer license this year after 42 years of hunting deer.
I started hunting antelope in WY five years ago and found what a pleasure it can be hunting and not being treated like a criminal from the game wardens. They do their job but don't hound you trying to find something you could be doing wrong in their 'opinion'.
I got a mule deer in '09 and just love the spot and stalk type hunting you can do out west.Heck it's out west
I just hunt coyotes here now and didn't apply for anything else.
I hope the new people taking over the dnr turn things around and don't mess up the environment at the same time.
Check out the book 'How The DNR Stole Wisconsin' by Richard Moore, very interesting reading.
