HUNTING REPORT
Archery deer season is not quite open, but it’s coming up quickly.  The season starts on September 13, so savvy hunters are out scouting now.  The Eagle River area is blessed with large amounts of public land, so get out into the forest and start looking.  There are two things to look for right now.  First, look for deer trails.  This will indicate deer are in the area, and will give you some sense of their movement in your chosen spot. Second, start looking for oak trees.  Acorns are not dropping yet, but if you can find some oaks that clearly have acorns in the canopy, you will have found a great spot to set up when the acorns fall.  The bucks are still in velvet, so you won¹t see many rubs yet.

There are lots of young turkeys in the Eagle River area.  The best place to look for them is along roadways, especially those with grassy ditches and some grit along the edge.  They can also be spotted in meadows, wildlife openings, and power line corridors in the Vilas County Forest, Nicolet National Forest, and the Northern Highland American Legion state Forest. All these public lands are very close to Eagle River.
