Hours away from Deer Season 2017!

Hours away from Deer Season 2017!

I am from a small town in Northeast Wisconsin. Growing up, my cousins to the south (Milwaukee) were amazed by the fact that we got the whole week off for Deer Season! It made them crazy!   (I thought it was completely normal and that everyone had Deer Season off until I was in high school.)

I am not, nor have I ever been, a hunter – but I can appreciate the comradery, the thrill of the hunt, the excitement, the traditions (No Shave November, etc.).     Traditions are good. They are the strings that keep families and friends connected.

At WI Pay, we have traditions too. In November, we start readying for year end, gathering new unemployment tax rates and deductions for our clients’ employees. We are making a list and checking it twice to make sure all our bases are covered, I’s are dotted, and T’s are crossed. It can be a crazy time for us, but in keeping with our tradition of preparing ahead, it becomes a great opportunity to feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

It’s always good to begin new traditions too. This year as you take to the woods, perhaps you would consider taking part in the Wisconsin Deer Donation 2017. Here is the link to a document with all the information you need for donating deer in Wisconsin and helping those in need:


Happy hunting, have fun, be safe, enjoy your traditions and create some new ones!
