Public hearing regarding the white tail deer population objectives and deer management unit boundaries.
Fitchburg DNR Service Center, 3911 Fish Hatchery Road, Room: Gathering Waters Conference Room
Fitchburg, Wisconsin 53711 (Dane County)
View map of location
Contact: Meredith Penthorn, 608-267-2948
Detailed information: The DNR is required to review Deer Management Unit (DMU) boundaries and deer population objectives (increase, maintain or decrease the deer population) at three-year intervals. Population objectives and DMUs serve as the foundation for managing the deer herd and determining annual deer hunting season structures and antlerless deer permit availability. To form population objectives and revised DMU boundaries, County Deer Advisory Councils (CDACs) review deer herd metrics and public input. Each year, CDACs recommend antlerless deer harvest quotas, carcass tag levels and deer season structure within each DMU to work toward that DMU's 3-year population objective.
This rule will revise Wisconsin Administrative Code (Ch. NR 10) to reflect updated DMUs and population objectives. Implementing this rule will allow CDACs to form annual deer season recommendations based on these updated DMUs and objectives.
