Governor Dodge 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:

In addition to the opportunities that are available during the state parks hunting/trapping time frame, hunting opportunities in state parks that were already established by rule and in place prior to the enactment of 2011 ACT 168, remain in place.

  • At Governor Dodge State Park, this includes archery deer hunting, which is allowed in the park from Oct. 15 through the Sunday nearest Jan. 6 and small game hunting from Nov. 1 through Nov. 14, ending at noon each day.

Hunters may hunt deer, small game and turkey in designated areas of the park in season. Special regulations and seasons apply for each hunt. Please check the 2022 Deer Hunting Regulations and the 2022 Small Game and Fall Turkey Regulations for more information or contact the park office for park-specific hunting information.
