There's still more whitetail deer hunting to do in Wisconsin.

The 4-day bow or gun hunting season is only for does or young bucks without antlers.

The short season follows the traditional nine-day gun hunt in which the State Department of Natural Resources says hunters killed 277,000 deer, down 20 percent from a year ago.

The December hunt was created in 2006 to provide additional opportunities to kill antler-less deer from the overpopulated herd.

Some hunters have complained this year that DNR deer estimates may be too high.

The DNR advises hunters to double-check specific tagging and weapon regulations for the deer management unit or state park in which they plan to hunt.
