Wisconsin DNR To Host Public Meetings For Proposed Fall Migratory Game Bird Hunting Seasons

Posted on 3-01-2023

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced a series of public meetings to present information on the proposed 2023-2025 migratory game bird seasons. The public is encouraged to attend and provide feedback in the manner they prefer.

The 2023-2025 season proposal details were finalized following the Migratory Game Bird Committee meeting on February 28th, and are available for public review here.

“The DNR has made the decision to set the migratory game bird seasons for multiple years to create more consistency across seasons. We hope the public takes advantage of our many input opportunities during this important review and comment period,” said Taylor Finger, DNR Game Bird Specialist.

Because migratory bird season dates and structures don’t often change on a year-to-year basis, the DNR is moving to a multi-year season setting structure to simplify the regulation process. In addition to this change, public hearings will take place both in-person and virtually to provide more options for anyone interested in providing input on the migratory bird season structure.
