Bear Advisory Committee

The Bear Advisory Committee is a diverse group representing agency, non-agency, tribal and stakeholder interests. The committee meets to propose bear quota recommendations and advises the Wildlife Policy Team on a variety of topics such as population monitoring and research priorities. Department leadership considers proposed quotas in developing department recommendations for Natural Resources Board approval.

Committee meeting information

The state's bear management objectives are to ensure a sustainable bear population; manage the bear population through a regulated hunting season towards the established population goals in accordance with Wisconsin's bear management plan; quickly and effectively address depredations and other conflicts; and learn for future bear management adaptation.
