Wisconsin Bear Hunting Season Looks Good

With the Wisconsin bear hunting opener Sept 7th, many bear hunters are geared up and ready to hit the woods.

Statewide the success rate in 2015 was about 39%, and hunters in northern WI saw a 61% rate of successful harvest. With an estimated population nearing 29,000 black bears this year, its predicted that this bear hunting season could be a real winner, weather permitting.

Last season just under 110,000 hunters put in for the 11,500 tags that were available for this fall’s hunt. Eight years is about the average wait to pull a WI bear hunting tag.

Wisconsin bear hunters can hunt over bait, or with dogs using rifle or bow depending on the section of the season.

WI Bear Hunting PropertyWisconsin’s bear population continues to flourish, and hunters who are fortunate enough to draw licenses can expect good success rates this fall.

Statewide, the hunting success rate is about 40 percent, and last year hunters in Northwestern Wisconsin enjoyed a 60 percent success rate, said Greg Kessler, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist at Brule.

Wisconsin’s bear population is estimated at more than 28,000. The state’s bear season opens Sept. 7, and various time periods allow hunting with bait, with dogs or both.

More than 109,000 hunters applied for the state’s 11,520 harvest permits this year. The wait to get a harvest permit can be as long as eight or nine years, depending on the bear management zone.

Bayfield and Douglas counties are usually among the the leaders statewide for numbers of bears taken each fall.

Average bruin size is expected to be down a bit, but the number of bears is seen to make up for this overall. With several mild winters and plenty of food available, Wisconsin bears are quickly becoming more and more common throughout the state, especially in northern counties where larger tracts of Wisconsin hunting land and forested areas make up there preferred habitat.

Much of this land is hunted by the land owners, especially during the gun deer season. Things like stand placement, hunter location etc may need to be worked out with the land owner beforehand in order to avoid any problems during the actual hunting season.

No one wants to show up on their deer hunting land on opening morning to discover another hunter has set up shop 50 yards away in an adjacent tree. Working things out in advance is a great way to ensure a safe deer hunt that everyone can enjoy!

Central Wisconsin Deer Population Looks Good

With September right around the corner many land and hunters are reporting high deer sightings with many does seen followed by fawns. Last year’s mild winter in the south was seen as a great chance for the whitetail herd to continue to make a come back.

48084-05598-3224908While concerns of CWD continue to linger with percentages of deer with the disease on the rise in all areas, especially in mature bucks, the overall outlook looks promising for the 2016 deer season.

Blue tongue is also a concern in some areas of the state which saw major impact in several hot zones. Blue tongue is spread by a midge which arises from the soil and infects deer, rendering them feverish and with lingering appetites. In some cases the tongue will hang out and turn blue as the animal dies near water.

Blue tongue seems to hit specific areas quite hard, oftentimes wiping out entire herds of deer. Luckily the disease appears to be rather rare, although increasing temperatures due to climate change seem to be increasing the survival rates of the insects over the winter.
