'Hunting and Fishing Day' Celebrates State Hunters and Anglers
Published on 09/22/2017 under News Coming up Saturday, the state of Wisconsin, like the rest of the country, will celebrate hunters and anglers. Governor Walker has declared Saturday 'Hunting and Fishing Day' in Wisconsin. It coincides with a national day of recognition established by congress in 1972. The DNR noted the day is dedicated to learning and sharing the great Wisconsin traditions of hunting and fishing. It's also a way to celebrate the valuable role that anglers and hunters play in conservation and maintaining wildlife. Kurt Thiede, who is serving as interim secretary of the DNR, noted that includes those enthusiasts funding 90 percent of fish and wildlife management through license fees and excise taxes. As part of the day, the DNR is taking to social media and encouraging others to do the same. You can use the hashtags #wildwi and #myfirsthunt to share photos, videos or favorite recipes from a harvest on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Teams in Antigo, Rhinelander and Medford have been busy raising donations for the Walk to End Alzheimer's in their respective communities tomorrow.

Organizers say that 5 million Americans and 110,000 Wisconsinites are living with Alzheimer's at this time. In addition to the Walk, participants will share stories from local families connected with the disease, as well as learning more about advocacy opportunities, clinical studies and support programs.

Northern Zone Duck Season Opens Saturday
Published on 09/22/2017 under News The 2017 North Zone duck season is set to open tomorrow, and the DNR is expecting a good hunting forecast. DNR migratory game bird ecologist Taylor Finger says "Conditions were above average this spring, and the entire state has seen abundant rainfall for most of the summer, with it starting to dry out heading into early fall. Waterfowlers should have the potential for a good hunting season." Finger added, "As always, hunters who take the time to scout for good wetland conditions and observe what areas birds are using will have more success." Hunter survey data in Wisconsin show that duck hunters who scouted three or more times harvested on average 3-4 times as many ducks per season, as those who did not scout. The 2017 North Zone duck season will run from Sept. 23 to Nov. 21 - opening day shooting hours will begin 30 minutes before sunrise. The daily bag limit statewide is six ducks.
