MADISON (WKOW) -- Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp released the following statement Tuesday on the release of the final Whitetail Deer Trustee report:
"Today we received the Wisconsin deer herd report from Deer Trustee, Dr. James Kroll and his team Dr. David Guynn and Dr. Gary Alt.
comprehensive report such as this will take several weeks to review, but the
Department of Natural Resources is ready, willing and eager to roll up our
sleeves and get started. We look forward to working with the public, the
Natural Resources Board, Governor Walker, Dr. Kroll, Wildlife Management
professionals, Legislators and the Conservation Congress to find ways to
make deer hunting even better in Wisconsin.
"I want to thank Dr. Kroll and his team for their efforts. All along we've had the same goal, to make sure Wisconsin leads the nation in deer management and that our rich deer hunting tradition remains strong."
