Are you talking bow or gun?
It's in the SW part of the state and I have no personal experience in that area.
I think it would be worth your time though all depending on the land of course.
I would think if it's decent land it should be good.
Hopefully somebody from that area will be able to help you better...
I would definetly hunt that area. I live about 40 minutes from La Farge and have been there numerous times. There are really big hills and valleys and perfect deer hunting country. There is also a state park near La Farge that is very nice and scenic. I would hunt in November during the rut or during the regular gun season. I'm sure there are a good amount of deer in that area also. I would take the opportunity and run with it. Good luck.
I don't know about that area but the whole state in general is seeing fewer deer than years past. I don't think that part of the state has been hit as hard as northern WI we're still waiting for the official "deer count" that will start the war on what zones will do as far as tags go for '09 season. Find out the deer zone # you are considering and watch for the zones to be set. You could be in 1 of 3 situations. 1)deer numbers are at goal in your zone and it will be a regular hunt. That's usually a buck or doe tag or buck and doe tags. 2)Your zone is below goal, tags maybe limited 3)your zone is above goal, and you may need to earn a buck by shooting a doe first, extra doe tags available, or other DNR tactic to lower the herd number. I almost for got 4)CWD zone. Too complicated to explain here, basically brown it's down as many as you can find..
WI has never been in this position before our herd hasn't been this small state wide in my lifetime. Every hunting op is a good op but you'll want to know what zone and see whats going on in that zone before you shell out the dollars. There's still some very good hunting here, mostly on private land, if the DNR hasn't over hunted it or wolves haven't moved in, or a bad winter kill, you're good to go. I'd bring a camera, grab the fishing pole, check out turkey tags, we've got lots of turkeys in some areas, and lots to do.
Has the wolves moved into the southwest part of the state yet?
