Buckhorn State Park

Hunting and trapping are allowed in the open areas of the park during the Wisconsin state parks hunting and trapping time frame. Trapping is not permitted in closed areas as noted on the park hunting map or within 100 yards of any designated use area, including trails. Certain trap types are restricted on state park properties. For more information, please see:

Two wildlife areas are adjacent to the park. Hunting seasons vary between the Buckhorn Wildlife Area, the Yellow River Wildlife Area and the park.

The park has an accessible two-story wildlife observation/hunting blind. There are also two accessible waterfowl hunting blinds in the wildlife area. People with disabilities can reserve a blind a day before they go hunting. If it is not reserved, the blind is first-come, first-served.

Buckhorn State Park and the Buckhorn Wildlife Area are in Zone 1. The Yellow River Wildlife Area, Zone 1, allows turkey hunting for all six spring periods and for fall turkey hunting.
