The City of Waupaca is getting ready to host a managed deer hunt to help reduce the deer population within city limits. The purpose of this is to help mitigate damage to plants and deer/vehicle accidents within the city limits.

Here are the details of this managed hunt:

• Hunt Time Period – January 10, 2022 – March 31, 2022
• Hunt will occur on large tracts of public and private lands – City Airport, Recycling Center/Cemetery, Well 2 (Washington St.) and the Waupaca Country Club.
• Hunters can sign up on the city website. Signing up expresses interest only and does not guarantee that a tag will be issued. Priority will be given to land owners and local residents.
• Hunters must have a valid bow license issued by the state of Wisconsin and may only hunt with the type of bow which they are permitted to use (i.e. compound vs crossbow).
• Hunters who are issued a tag must purchase a $10 bow discharge permit from the Police Department. These must be turned in before the individual hunts. Permits are good for two years.
• 20 deer tags will initially be acquired from the WDNR. Based on status of these tags, additional tags may be acquired.
• Mr. Hansen will communicate with each hunter to explain the rules of the hunt such as hours and locations.
• Cost to process any deer taken will be at the hunter’s expense. If a hunter does not want the deer, Mr. Hansen will process and donate to Bread Basket Inc here in Waupaca.
• Background checks will be done on all hunters selected.

Hunters can sign-up below if you have interest in participating. Signing up expresses interest only and does not guarantee that a tag will be issued. Priority will be given to land owners and local residents.
