Hunting, like fishing, is a well-established business in Wisconsin, though far less so on a tourist level. The nine-day gun deer season alone generates $250 million for the state. Fortunately, hunters are often more conservation-oriented than their civilian brethren. Many animal species owe their continued existence to hunting and conservation groups.
Deer hunting is essentially a rite of passage in Wisconsin’s North Woods even today. Entire school districts in the area shut down for the November white-tailed deer season. Other popular hunts include goose, duck, pheasant, and especially ruffed grouse.
