The woods and hills surrounding the Wausau Area abound with wildlife and game birds. Ideal natural conditions provide some excellent areas for hunting. Marathon County and the Wausau Area benefit from both county forestry management units and state wildlife areas that offer public hunting access. Hunting licenses in the Wausau Area are available at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources office, the County Clerk's office in Marathon County Courthouse and at many retail outlets selling guns and hunting equipment. Complete Wisconsin hunting regulations may be picked up where licenses are sold.
Hunting and trapping are prohibited in all Marathon County and City of Wausau parks.
Marathon County has nine County Forest units offering a variety of hunting opportunities.
Contact the DNR for additional public hunting opportunities.
