HUNTING REPORT
Woodcock season is now open in the Eagle River area.  Hunters are seeing birds in aspen stands between about 5 and 12 years old. Aspens about half ..the size of your wrist are ideal.  But the cover is still very thick and there are no flight birds yet.  The hunting will improve every week from now… until the end of October.  These birds are great for pointing dogs ­ especially young dogs.  They hold well for puppies, and will get them very excited about bird hunting.
The Wisconsin DNR launched an excellent program to help you find grouse and.. woodcock cover.  It is called Flight and can be reached at this web address: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/lands/fflight.html It shows grouse and woodcock habitat in all three public forests in the Eagle River area ­ the Vilas County Forest, the Northern Highland American. Legion State Forest, and the Nicolet National Forest.  It is an excellent tool to help you locate hunting hot spots in the Eagle River area.
 
Archery deer is also open in the Eagle River area.  Fawns are with their mothers and bucks are still in bachelor groups.  So you will often see more. than one deer at a time.  It is common for one deer to ease out of the cover, to be followed by other ­ potentially larger deer.
 
Duck season in the northern zone opens next  Saturday, September 27. Turkeys are extremely common, and are all over the roads.  Be careful when driving highways ­ flocks are feeding in the grassy right of ways and will wander onto the road.
