Anterless deer tags go on sale for Marathon Co. area
WAUSAU (WAOW) -
Anxious hunters are gearing up for the start of deer season.
On Tuesday, anterless deer tags went on sale for all weapon types in the Central Farmland Zone, which includes Marathon County.
DNR workers say hunters bought about 400 tags.
People can buy one anterless tag per day.
Outdoor store sales people say hunters buy the anterless tags for a variety of reasons.
"A lot of youth hunters, a lot of people bringing their families out for the first time or guys that aren't so concerned about the big rack or catching the big buck, but just wanting to put meat on the table," said Zach Swanson, a Shay Creek Sports sales clerk.
Sales for the Southern Farmland Zone open Wednesday.
Starting on Thursday, hunters can buy tags for any region.
