MADISON-Wisconsin's County Deer Advisory Councils are now accepting applications to fill vacant seats, beginning in 2016. These councils provide local deer herd management recommendations to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

Councils provide an opportunity to play an active role in deer management through the development of management recommendations based on annual harvest data and deer management issues specific to each county. These recommendations help the department determine antlerless quotas, antlerless permits and annual season options.

Both hunters and non-hunters are welcome to apply for these vacancies, but applicants must have experience or involvement with at least one of the seven stakeholder groups represented on the council. Applications may be submitted at any time. However, interested individuals are encouraged to submit their application by Jan. 1 to be an active participant in 2016.

Several councils currently have at least one seat available for qualified applicants. To view open seats in your county and determine if you may be a good representative for one of the stakeholder groups, visit and search keyword "CDAC," click "find," and select your county using the drop-down menu.

Qualified applicants are asked to attend all meetings, represent the views of their stakeholder group and contribute feedback during discussions. Council members serve three-year terms, and will be required to attend between two and four meetings annually, depending on the year.

For additional information regarding CDAC recommendations, agendas and membership, search keyword "CDAC" - any additional questions can also be sent to
