Public meeting takes aim at deer herd in Oneida, Vilas and Iron counties

While the hunting season might be months away, planning for the 2013 deer hunting season is underway. Wildlife biologists with the state Department of Natural Resources invite anyone interested in discussing the status of the deer herd in Iron, Oneida and Vilas counties to attend a public meeting from 6-9 p.m., Wednesday, March 20 at Woodruff Town Hall, 1418 1st Ave., Woodruff.

Deer herd management throughout Wisconsin depends greatly on information provided by the public.  This is the first formal opportunity of the year for hunters and other interested individuals to discuss the possible structure of the 2013 deer hunting seasons with DNR wildlife managers. 

Local wildlife biologists will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the current status of the deer herd in these counties. They will listen to ideas and observations about local deer numbers, and discuss possible strategies to manage them. Available for viewing are deer harvest histories and other information provided by hunters through deer registration from the 2012 season.

Those unable to attend a local meeting may still provide their personal input on their favorite deer management unit using an on-line herd status summary and survey which will be active from March 18 to April 12.  During that period, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keywords “Deer Hunter Forum.” Comments and survey results will be compiled and provided to the wildlife biologist responsible for each county.
