Public Comment Sought On 2016 Deer Management Policies


The public can review County Deer Advisory Council recommendations and make comment on them.

Each county has an advisory council and they met recently to make recommendations to the DNR and Natural Resources Board about antlerless deer quotas, permit levels and other options for this year's deer seasons.

DNR big game ecologist Kevin Wallenfang says comment is welcome concerning the council's findings...

"....those recommendations are now out for public comment. The public is welcome to contact individuals on those county deer councils but an easier way to submit comment is through a survey we have on the DNR website.... "

Wallenfang says each county council will review public feedback at meetings during the week of April 18 before making final recommendations to the DNR. The recommendations will be advanced to the Natural Resources Board in May. Comments are due by April 17.
