Most people forget, but Wisconsin's gun season is actually 19 days long.  You get 9 days to fill your tag with a rifle and 10 days with a muzzleloader.  This year, I need that second chance.  Unfortunately, the Wisconsin woods are completely chaotic and unpredictable; the tradition of rifle season brings heavy hunting pressure and education to mature whitetails.  On the other hand, mature bucks we have never seen before can be pushed onto our property without even knowing it.  I am hoping that the low temps drive the mature bucks, out in daylight, to a food source where I will be waiting for my second chance.  Who knows, maybe a giant will show up that we've never seen before!?
