Southwest Wisconsin, CWD, Deer and Predator Study

Fall 2016 kicked off the early stages of this groundbreaking research, which stems from Gov. Scott Walker's commitment to reevaluate chronic wasting disease in Wisconsin. This study will evaluate factors like predation, habitat conditions, hunter harvest, and chronic wasting disease to measure impacts on deer survival and deer populations in southern Wisconsin.

To learn more about this study and other DNR research projects, search keywords "deer research."
