Deer Hunt Wisconsin Airs November 11-14

MADISON, WI—Dan Small, one of the most recognized and trusted outdoor celebrities in the Midwest, announced air times for his annual TV and online production, Deer Hunt Wisconsin.

This year’s special will debut November 11 at 7pm on Bally Sports North and Bally Sports Wisconsin, 8:30pm on PBS Wisconsin, and 9pm on Milwaukee PBS.

“Dan’s award-winning Deer Hunt Wisconsin annual TV special showcases hunters as conservationists, mentors and humanitarians,” said Charmaine Wargolet, Regional Representative for Safari Club International, whose Badgerland, Lake Superior and Wisconsin Chapters help underwrite the production, along with Wisconsin-based Vortex Optics, LeRoy Meats, Access Ability Wisconsin, Mayville Engineering Corp. (MEC), Outdoor Heritage Education Center, and Whitetail Sanctuary Solutions, plus Wisconsin Outdoor News, Hunting Works for Wisconsin, National Wildlife Federation Outdoors, Huntworth Gear, Floe Trailers, Ferry Bluff Eagle Center, Wild Eagle Lodge, American Honda Motorsports, and Wildlife Research Center.

Host Dan Small noted, “The 2021 show has some great segments, including a disabled female hunter who breaks stereotypes and reverses roles. Watch as she, from her all-terrain wheelchair, mentors a young able-bodied girl on her first Wisconsin deer hunt. And learn about efforts to make the outdoors accessible for everyone. With support from the Wildlife Federation, SCI and others, she plans to make all-terrain wheelchairs available in every county in Wisconsin for anyone to use free to experience places outdoors that they could not otherwise visit.”

Wargolet said the deer show’s segments like that help communicate some of SCI’s contributions to society. She praised chapter member Rick Rollo and supporters of Big Al’s Charity Pheasant Hunt, an annual fundraiser in memory of his late father who fought cancer for 10 years. Proceeds from the event support humanitarian efforts through the SCI Wisconsin Chapter. Rollo, in turn, praised the event’s supporters.

“As a bonus, we expect it might also improve the lives of some people who see the disabled hunter segment and learn for the first time about the special outdoor wheelchairs and then take advantage of their free use,” said SCI Foundation’s American Wilderness Leadership School graduate Kari Strang of the Outdoor Heritage Education Center, which hosts an Access Ability Wisconsin free chair for Grant and Lafayette Counties.

Deer Hunt Wisconsin viewers in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas, this year also will see segments that include Mark LaBarbera’s CWD deer, shed antler hunting tips, a successful mentored crossbow hunt, Michael Murphy’s treestand tips from Whitetail Sanctuary Solutions, new rules, season dates and hunting opportunities, plus a region-by-region forecast for this year’s firearms deer season. As always, the program will deliver a strong safety message for all hunters. This year’s program also covers the tradition of deer hunting, the joys of mentoring new hunters and an important update on chronic wasting disease (CWD).
