Hunt Guide lists wrong dates for rifles in deer reduction zones

    Due to an editing error, dates in the 2016-17 DNR Hunting/Trapping Regulations Guide during which new rifle options for deer hunting in the deer reduction zone season are incorrect.

    Legal rifle cartridges, including the new rifle options, can be used in deer reduction zones only from Nov. 12 through Jan. 31, 2017, and only where local ordinances allow the use of firearms.

    The deer reduction zone season opened Sept. 15. Until Nov. 12, equipment choices are limited to archery and crossbows.
