2023 Marquette County, WI Deer Hunting
Written by marquette-ad on November 8, 2023
Each year over 12,000 people take to the woods to hunt deer in Marquette County. With about ¾ of the hunters coming from outside of the area, deer season is a huge driver of economic activity. Through November 7th, a total of 1718 deer have been harvested in the county in 2023 by archery and youth hunters. The upcoming traditional nine-day season will open on November 18th and run through November 26th. Below you will find information on sight-in, where to get gear, and the deer donation program.
There are several public hunting properties throughout the county. Information can by found by clicking here https://www.travelmarquettecounty.com/things_to_do_categories/hunting/
