I received an emailed DNR "White-Tailed Deer Update" the other day and have been meaning to post the contents here.
The relevant text says, "Earlier this year, the Natural Resources Board approved several new rules pertaining to the current license year hunting seasons. These rules were not immediately in place because they needed to undergo a legislative review process. This process is now complete for these rules, and they will be in effect starting this fall. These changes are not reflected in the printed version of the hunting regulations, but will be updated in the online versions of the regulation booklets in the near future.
These new rules are:
1. Rifles will be allowed in Waupaca County for the 9-day firearm deer season. "
The rest of the email pertains to turkey hunting.
Here's a brief link I was able to find on their site. You will need to scroll down to the Waupaca County info.http://dnr.wi.gov/news/DNRNews_Lookup.asp?id=292#art7
