MADISON - Qualified applicants are encouraged to apply for County Deer Advisory Council seats before the application period closes for all counties July 1, 2017.
Council members meet annually to review deer management data, gather public input from citizens and are a key step in establishing the deer seasons by providing recommendations to the Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Board regarding deer management decisions in their county.
Councils include representatives in the following areas of expertise: agriculture, forestry, tourism, transportation, hunting, land management and local government. Both hunters and non-hunters are encouraged to apply for vacancies, but applicants must have experience or involvement with at least one of these seven stakeholder categories. A majority of council members have expressed satisfaction with their overall CDAC experience.
