Date change for Lincoln County Deer Advisory Council - first meeting will be held March 21

By Central Office March 7, 2018

Contact(s): Nick Schertz, Lincoln County CDAC Chair, 715-966-6116

MADISON - The Lincoln County Deer Advisory Council will meet to review data and form preliminary 2018 antlerless quota, permit and season structure recommendations at Lincoln County Sports Club, Schultz Spur Rd, Merrill on Wednesday, March 21 at 7 p.m. (this meeting date is a change from March 22, which was published earlier).

Councils represent an effort to provide more public input on deer management issues and give stakeholders a greater responsibility in managing local deer numbers. While this is a working meeting of the council, the public is encouraged to attend and will have a formal opportunity to provide insight during the public comment period of the meeting.

Councils will review and discuss previous year's hunting season results and long-term harvest trends, accept public comments and develop preliminary antlerless quota, permit and season structure recommendations. Recommendations will be sent to the Natural Resources Board for approval in May.

Citizens are encouraged to attend their CDACs March meeting and provide comments to the council. Local Department of Natural Resources staff will be on hand to present information and answer any questions.

Following March CDAC meetings, an online public comment period will be open from April 2-12, with a final council meeting being held during the week of April 16 (official dates yet to be determined) to allow the council to review public feedback before making final recommendations on the antlerless quota, permit and season structure.

Those unable to attend their county's meeting can view meeting minutes at, keyword "CDAC."

Some county councils have vacant seats, and qualified individuals are encouraged to look at the list of members if interested in filling a seat. An application and frequently asked questions document can be found on the CDAC page.
