DNR Q & A
Q: While hunting this fall, can I carry a shotgun for turkey and a bow for deer?
A: No. It is unlawful to possess a firearm while archery deer hunting. This applies to bow hunters with a crossbow permit as well. The exception is that if you have a permit to carry a handgun, you may have it while archery deer hunting, but this provision does not extend to shotguns or rifles. If you’d like to use a shotgun for turkey, you’ll need to take your bow home, back to camp or secure it in a vehicle first.

Fishing & Hunting Reports
Walleye in the Eagle River area are locating off of break edges and adjacent mud flats in 10-30 feet of water. The walleye are tight to bottom. Use a 1/8th ounce jig with a fathead minnow. All day action and the bite is good to excellent.
DNR Outdoor Report
Water levels have started to drop on the lakes, rivers and streams, but they still remain high for this time of year.
