The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board (NRB) reduced the bear harvest quota from last season for 2024, which will result in 10% fewer tags to be issued.
The 2023 bear harvest took a significant dip, totaling 3,005 bears, whereas the kill in an average year is around 4,000. The 2023 harvest included 26 bears shot on agriculture damage permits, 25 during learn-to-hunt events, and 29 bears by tribal off-reservation hunters.
