Spring 2018 CDAC meetings

The spring 2018 CDAC meetings will begin the quota setting process for the 2018 deer season. Important dates include:

  • March 12-15, 19-22: CDACs will meet to review data and form preliminary 2018 antlerless harvest quota, permit and season structure recommendations.
  • April 2-12: Public comment period
  • April 16-19: CDACs will meet to review public feedback and determine final recommendations.

View the March agenda and list of March meeting dates.

Each county in Wisconsin has a County Deer Advisory Council (CDAC) to provide input and recommendations to the department on deer management within their county. Councils work with local department staff to schedule meetings, provide community outreach and an opportunity for public input, review population data and deer impacts on forests and agriculture, develop 3-year recommendations on county population objectives and create annual antlerless harvest quotas.

Find county-specific contacts, meeting information and deer herd data.

Review county deer herd metrics and harvest information.
