Fishing is poor but not impossible. The River seems to be producing but there are a lot of leaves floating around.
Trapping began Oct. 17 for coyote, fox (Red or Gray), bobcat (if you have a permit for period 1), fisher, raccoon (resident only). Mink and muskrat opens Oct. 24. Beaver and otter start Nov 7 (permit required).
The bucks are starting to move. Scrapes and rubs are plentiful. The best deer hunting is right around the corner. Shooting hours in Clark and Taylor County are 30 minutes before sunrise to 20 minutes after sunset (if you can see!). Complete times are listed in the Fall 2020-Spring 2021 Wisconsin Hunting Regulations available at O-W Sports, Owen.
