DNR conducting deer population surveys

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)—The Department of Natural Resources wants your help managing the deer population.

They're asking hunters and non hunters to take two surveys to convey what they think about managing the resource.

The DNR wants to know where you think deer are and what you're seeing on the landscape.

They use that information to help prepare for the next hunting season so they know if they need to increase or decrease opportunities for harvest.

"Animals are being let go or not harvested at a young age so the antlers or bucks are becoming older age class," Ron Lichtie, Wildlife Biologist, DNR said. "Doe population seems to be going the same way."
