Wisconsin Hunting and Fishing
Very few places in the United States have the variety of wildlife that exists in the state of Wisconsin. As a favorite destination for hunters and sportsmen, opportunities to hunt big game like black bear and white-tailed to smaller game like wild turkey and fowl abound. There are various hunting seasons and regulations in place in order to maintain healthy wildlife populations. The best source of information is the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website: www.dnr.wi.gov.
The deer hunting season in Wisconsin is a HUGE event. It is so big that many restaurants, clubs, hotels and family indoor water parks all have specials for “Deer Hunting Widows” and their families. Even a quick search on the internet will provide you with a host of activities for other family members if the husband has gone hunting.
