Aside from chronic wasting disease (see page 80), the buzz for Wisconsin whitetail hunters is that there are additional hunting opportunities. Starting this fall, bowhunters will enjoy more than an extra week of hunting each year. The muzzleloader season also has been extended from 7 days to 10 days. With the whitetail population at 1.5 million, look for T-Zone (antlerless-only) hunts to continue this season.
