MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Department of Natural Resources board voted Thursday to revise antlerless deer quotas in some northern Wisconsin counties, hoping to defuse complaints that it violated open meeting laws and ignored local recommendations when it tightened kill limits last month.

The seven-member board adopted 2020 deer season quotas during a meeting June 24. The plan reduced antlerless quotas in 11 northern counties — Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Florence, Langlade, Lincoln, Marinette, Oconto, Oneida, Sawyer and Vilas — in an effort to allow the herd to grow.
