Public meeting Saturday for final Deer Trustee proposals Submitted: 07/16/2013
Story By Wisconsin DNR

MADISON - On Saturday, area deer hunters and residents can hear the final Deer Trustee proposals.

This meeting is the first opportunity for the public to hear the summary of the proposals.

366,700 deer were killed between the archery and 9-day firearms seasons last year.

Folks are welcome to ask questions and give their opinion. Saturday's meeting is at the Dreyfus Center on the UW-Stevens Point campus.

It runs from 10-2pm. There is also a live webcast if you are not able to make it.

The proposal report-outs will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at UW-Stevens Point Dreyfus University Center, 1015 Reserve Street. This portion of the meeting will also be live webcasted for those who are interested but are unable to attend in person.

There will be a question and answer session where all attendees, in-person or online, will have the option to submit questions after the presentation.

"We hope for good participation in this peer-to-peer sharing of proposals," Lobner said. "The DNR has been the ears in this process. The public has been the voice, and the public has assembled the proposals."

Though the report-out section of the meeting runs an hour, the entire meeting will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees are welcome to sit in with the action teams as observers and listeners prior to the report-outs, where public input and questions will be welcome.

This meeting marks the seventh time the action teams have met since March.

From here, rules will be drafted by DNR based on the action team implementation proposals.
