The Rhinelander Area is an outstanding hunting destination for ruffed grouse, white-tailed deer, wild turkey and black bear. White-tailed deer hunting is excellent throughout Hodag Country, with a good number of bucks taken in both the bow and gun seasons. The wild turkey population has been growing in the Rhinelander area and turkeys have become an exciting hunting opportunity. In the forests of the Rhinelander Area, black bear are plentiful and can reach an impressive size.


The ruffed grouse hunting in Hodag Country is second to none. The Rhinelander Area is one of the best places on earth to hunt for these wary woodland birds. The mix of young forests, conifers and hardwoods creates the highest quality ruffed grouse habitat.

You’ll find grouse population densities rivaling
any other hunting destination in the Midwest.


The hunting in Northern Wisconsin is in a definite swing up. The amount of birds that I have been flushing (not necessarily hitting!) has more that doubled in 2011. It is expected to nearly double again this year. The grouse population as predicted by the Wisconsin DNR is suppose to be increasing every year for the next 3-4 years. It is a good time to be in the woods chasing grouse and woodcock.

I have a Brittany Spaniel that will make you tired
just watching him go. He is a joy to watch hunt. I
also have a Lab that is equally enthusiastic about
hunting. The combination of the two can lead to
some explosive action.

If you enjoy wing shooting you have to give it a try!!

Whitetail Deer

Wisconsin has many diverse habitats within the State, and there are particular area’s where the natural habitat encourage antler growth on Whitetail deer that is unsurpassed anywhere else in North America.

There are also areas in Northern Wisconsin that hold larger numbers of mature deer per square mile of habitat than others. The vast open space combined with an unmatched natural habitat and the least hunting pressure is the combination a traveling hunter should look for to harvest a mature Wisconsin Whitetail Buck. Northern Wisconsin has those very conditions.

Unlike Southern Wisconsin which is mostly private land, Northern Wisconsin has hundreds of square miles of public hunting land, leading to lower hunting pressure, plus, you will capture the true essence of Wisconsin's Northwoods.
