Wis. DNR Q&A: Lost Archery Tag, Shining Deer, Baiting Coyotes

Created: 11/29/2013 2:30 PM WDIO.com

The following are some of the most frequently asked questions taken by the DNR Call Center and the Department of Natural Resources' conservation wardens. The Call Center is staffed daily, 7 a.m.  to 10 p.m., and offers bilingual service in Spanish and Hmong. The number is 1-888-936-7463.

Question: I lost my archery back tag and I am wondering how I can get a new one?

Answer: A duplicate can only be purchased at your local license agent. A duplicate back tag without kill tags for residents and nonresidents is $12. A duplicate back tag with carcass tags for residents and nonresidents is $15. A license that authorizes hunting small game is required for residents to shoot a coyote, and a non-resident fur-bearing animal hunting license is required for a non-resident to shoot a coyote. A gun-deer license does not authorize hunting of coyote. Here is that link to find a local license agent near you:  http://dnr.wi.gov/Permits/CSRSP/LicenseAgents.aspx

Question: How late can I shine for deer?

Answer: Now through December 31, there is no shining allowed between the hours 10 p.m. through to 7 a.m. the following morning. Other things to remember while shining before 10 p.m., include: it is not legal to be in possession of ANY firearm, bow & arrow or crossbow; and, be sure to check with your local sheriff’s office for any more restrictive local shining ordinances. It also is important to note that not even a license or permit to carry a concealed weapon (CCW) allows the person to possess their handgun while otherwise lawfully shining wild animals.

Question: Can you use a dead deer to bait coyotes for hunting purposes?

Answer: Hunting coyote, wolf, fox or raccoons over a deer gut pile or a naturally occurring carcass of a deer is not considered baiting. However, carcasses of animals may not be placed out intentionally as bait for hunting any game.
