Multiple Hunting Seasons Begin In September

(UNDATED) – Fall weather means hunters will take to the fields as several seasons open in September.

Starting Sept. 1, gamebird seasons, including dove, snipe, and sora rail, will open.

Sept. 12 marks the start of waterfowl season for early teal and geese.

Deer reduction zone season starts Sept. 15.

You can find the designated locations for this season on the DNR website.

Outdoor recreationists should check with DNR property offices before visiting if they plan to go off the trails. Certain areas may be closed for reserved hunts or designated seasons. Individuals can wear hunter orange as an additional precaution when entering areas where hunters may be present.
