While we’re avoiding the crowds in the stores, we’ll also have to avoid the hunters out on the trails as Wisconsin’s 9-day deer gun season continues through the weekend.
Most of the popular public areas with Devil’s Lake & Mirror Lake State Parks are closed to hunting but still, it’s a good idea to have a peek at the hunting zone maps and be sure you are in a safe area. Also, it’s a good plan that both you and your pets wear blaze orange… EVEN when you think you are in a safe area. Here are the maps
- Hunting IS allowed within Devil’s Lake State Park’s popular Steinke Basin area.
- Hunting IS mostly allowed within Baxter’s Hollow SNA. Map
- Hunting is NOT allowed in Parfrey’s Glen SNA.

Have a great holiday and be safe!
