MADISON (WKOW) – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will host about three dozen public hearings to get input on the agency's plan to implement deer management changes.
The agency has many hearings scheduled at multiple locations across the state from Tuesday through October 31. A complete list of dates and locations is available on the agency's website.
Governor Scott Walker's administration hired James Kroll, a researcher from Texas, to study deer management and how the DNR can improve its relationship with hunters.
The DNR developed a number of proposals based on his report, including lengthening deer seasons, allowing landowners more antler less tags if they provide tissue samples to the DNR for study, creating county committees on deer management and reducing the number of deer management zones.
