MADISON, WI -- Archery and crossbow deer season will soon open for hunters statewide.

The archery and crossbow window will be open from Sept. 12 to Jan. 3, 2021 with an extension date of Jan. 31, in metro sub-units. Multiple counties will offer the antlerless-only holiday hunt between the Christmas and New Year holidays.

"Reports from many areas of the state indicate that people are generally seeing good deer numbers and excellent antler growth," said Bob Nack, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) big game section chief.

This year, Forest County and the forest zone portions of Marinette and Oconto counties will be the only units with buck-only seasons.
