Deer trustee report implementation
The deer trustee implementation survey is now closed. You can still submit your comments to the DTR Action Teams.
Questions can be directed to Eric Lobner
The final report and recommendations by Wisconsin's white-tailed deer trustee and review committee (Drs. Kroll, Guynn and Alt) was presented to the Department of Administration and subsequently to the Department of Natural Resources. In the Deer Trustee Report (DTR), there are 62 specific recommendations identified which lay a path for modifying the future of deer management in Wisconsin.
As a starting point in the process of taking the final recommendations of the report and transition them into action on the ground, the DNR will be coordinating a public involvement process that that will be driven by the public through action teams oriented around the specific recommendations of the report.

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, are evaluating the survey results. Currently, they are in the planning and proposal stage of the recommendation process. If you have any questions, submit your comments or feel free to contact any of the action team liaisons. Again, thank you.
