Deer trustee report implementation
The State of Wisconsin Department of Administration contracted with Dr. James Kroll (Deer Trustee) to conduct an independent review of Wisconsin's deer management practices. The result of this undertaking known as the Deer Trustee Report included over 60 recommendations designed to improve Wisconsin's deer management programs and the hunting experience. After significant effort by the public, the Wisconsin DNR and other partners and stakeholder groups, several rule changes have been made that will go into effect beginning with the 2014 deer hunting seasons.

Thank you for participating in the Deer Trustee Report survey. We appreciate the time you took to give your thoughts on Wisconsin's white-tail deer population. The four action teams, regulations and season structure, science and research, Deer Management Assistance Program and herd health and chronic wasting disease, evaluated the survey results and developed the Final Deer Trustee Report rule package which was approved by the Natural Resource Board on January 23, 2014, and by the Governor on February 8, 2014. If you have any questions, submit your comments or feel free to contact any of the action team liaisons. Again, thank you.
