Deer tags available for purchase, starting Aug. 14

Bonus antlerless deer tags will be available for purchase, starting Aug. 14 at 10 a.m. through the Go Wild website and license sales locations.

The fall deer hunt is just around the corner. Visit, keyword “deer” and prepare for another season in the woods.

Bonus tags will be sold at a rate of one per person per day until sold out or until the 2017 deer hunting season ends.

For a list of units with bonus tags available for purchase, visit and search keywords “bonus availability.” These and all other deer hunting licenses and tags are available through the Go Wild website, or at any of more than 1,000 Go Wild license sale locations.

To prepare for the sale, each day at 9:45 a.m., an online queuing system will be in place to manage volume in the Go Wild system. At 10 a.m. online users on the site will be randomly assigned a number and staged into a “virtual” line regardless of the actual time you entered into the system.

There is no advantage for customers who enter the site before 9:59 a.m. Please note that customers who enter the site after the randomization that occurs at 10 a.m. will be added to the end of “virtual” line in the order in which they arrive. All visitors to the site during this time period will experience the queuing system.

When you access the Go Wild site, follow the prompts until you reach your personalized dashboard. To purchase a Bonus tag, click the “Buy Licenses” button from the dashboard to open the sales catalog – from there, you will find the Bonus Antlerless Deer Tag at the very top of the list.

If you haven’t had the chance to get your license in advance, Go Wild can help you purchase one after you select the Bonus Antlerless Deer Tag.

Hunters need to know the deer management zone, unit, and determine whether they will hunt on public or private land in order to purchase unit-specific bonus tags.

The first 3 days of bonus tag sales are management zone-specific and are available as follows:

Aug. 14, 10 a.m. – Northern and Central Forest (Zone 1) (77,075 tags available); Aug. 15, 10 a.m. – Central Farmland (Zone 2) (82,900 tags available); Aug. 16, 10 a.m. – Southern Farmland (Zone 2) (41,550 tags available); and Aug. 17, 10 a.m. – remaining bonus tags (all zones).

As a reminder, Farmland (Zone 2) antlerless tags are now available for distribution. Depending on the deer management unit, one or more Farmland (Zone 2) antlerless deer tags are included with the purchase of each gun and archery deer hunting license.

Those desiring email reminders can sign up for messages about season dates, license and tag types, and other information. Visit dnr. and click on the email icon “subscribe for updates for DNR topics,” then follow the prompts and select a list of your choice.
