State Roundup: Start with Iron County when looking deep into issues with Northern Wisconsin’s deer herd

In Wisconsin's Iron County, hunters only registered 189 bucks during the 2023 gun season, 22 during the bow season, and 13 by muzzeloader (281 total 2023 bucks with youth, et. al.). (Stock photo)

Steve Heiting’s deer series continues with a look at Iron and Ashland counties, along with an accompanying article on the front page of our June 14 print edition of Wisconsin Outdoor News.
I grew up hunting in both counties – the former units 28, 29A, and 29B. After moving to the Minocqua/Woodruff area in 1986 following military service and college, I continued hunting those units, and added Vilas and Oneida counties.
