Management Unit Back Tags & Hunter's Choice
In 1980 the DNR replaced the party permit system with hunter's choice. If the hunter's choice application was successful, in a given management unit, that hunter was sent three stickers. One for the back tag, one for the hunter's choice card, as well as one that had to be affixed to the license. The hunter's choice sticker meant that hunter could harvest either a buck or a doe in the particular unit. The management units were based off the old party permit system and were divided up further through the 1980's by units being broken up in to A, B, C, etc. In the example below you may notice how in South Eastern Wisconsin Management Units 77A and 77B on the 1983 map are divided up into 77A, 77B, and 77C on the 1987 map.
