Wisconsin has used the Earn-a-Buck program twice before – once in 1996 and again in 2004. The Earn-a-Buck programs is simple. You must shoot a doe first and then you earn the right to take a buck deer. The object in forcing hunters to take a doe first is part of a population management program used to help reduce the numbers of deer in certain locations.

Wildlife officials want to add 21 wildlife management units, mostly in the Fox River Valley area and in west-central Wisconsin, as Earn-a-Buck zones for this coming fall’s hunting season.
