MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - With the release of the final Whitetail Deer Trustee report, Governor Scott Walker made the following comments:
Today's report marks the conclusion of an independent study aimed at evaluating our current deer herd management practices. Moving forward we need to act on the report to enhance Wisconsin's rich hunting tradition.
While DNR staff has worked hard, we need to do more to ensure hunters and conservationists have confidence in the department's ability to manage the deer herd. Dr. Kroll and his team have gone through an exhaustive process to receive and evaluate comments from the public. The input incorporated into this report from hunters and conservationists will help us restore trust in the DNR's ability to enhance Wisconsin's hunting heritage as we move forward with implementation.
I look forward to working with Secretary Stepp and her team to follow through on Dr. Kroll's report.
