Thank you for participating in the Deer Trustee Report survey [PDF]. 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 [PDF] 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.
