Meetings Planned on Deer Management Submitted: 02/26/2013
Madison - Last summer, the state got the results of a study on deer management in Wisconsin. Now, state wildlife officials will hold public meetings on how to use those recommendations to improve deer hunting. The first meeting is March 9th at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The DNR plans to hold a half-dozen more at the university through July. Last year Governor Scott Walker hired James Kroll to study deer hunting. Kroll came up with 62 recommendations. Including holding mini-hunts on private land, setting more localized deer population goals and taking a more passive approach to handling chronic wasting disease. Those who attend the public meetings can join action teams and take part in making improvements. (Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
