Wisconsin DNR Urges Hunters To Keep COVID-19 Measures In Mind
Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 -- 8:35 AM
(DNR) With gun deer season getting set to open up this Saturday, the Wisconsin DNR is urging hunters to keep COVID-19 safety measures in mind and use the online reporting system to report their deer.
As Wisconsin continues to see record-setting numbers of positive cases of COVID-19, health and safety is paramount. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) discourages social gatherings of any size, including getting together with friends or extended family during hunting season at deer camps. The less time spent with people from other households, the less likely you are to get sick or spread COVID-19 to others. Try to lodge in your own room, tent or trailer and limit the number of households using shared spaces.
Although activities such as heading to camp or gathering at check stations are often considered an integral part of hunting season, extended physical or close contact increases the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Hunters are also reminded to register their deer online or by phone.
