Starting this season, a crossbow season will run concurrently with archery season in Wisconsin.  Now all hunters are permitted to buy the license.  In the past it was only available to hunters with disabilities or those over 65.

The crossbow deer hunting season will run concurrently with the archery season.

 

During open firearm seasons, a gun deer license will authorize bow and crossbow use.

 

Crossbow licenses include one statewide buck tag and one Farmland Zone antlerless tag.

 

Hunters who purchase both an archer license and a crossbow license will receive only one set of tags.
