Wildlife Update: November 13, 2019

Winter is on its way to the Grantsburg area. The migration season is basically over, with most of our waterfowl species and Sandhill Cranes gone for the winter. We are still seeing some swans in the area, and some of our winter birds are beginning to show up.

Within the last week we’ve seen Snow Buntings arrive, Lapland Longspurs have continued to come through, and we also have Pine Siskin and Northern Shrike on the list.

There are several hunting & trapping seasons open in Wisconsin, so be aware that you may see hunters out on the wildlife areas as you drive around. Check the WI DNR website for season dates.

The 9-Day gun deer season in Wisconsin runs from Saturday, November 23- December 1, 2019.
