As deer hunters know well, the archery season opens Saturday in Wisconsin.
It will be a unique deer hunting season with a set of new regulations in place, and buck-only hunts in most northern counties.
Deer hunters may face some adjustments when they head out into the woods this weekend.
As DNR Warden Supervisor Dave Walz explains, a variety of changes are taking effect thanks to the deer trustee rule package. For one, deer management units now tend to follow county lines, instead of highway or river boundaries like they often did before.
