SPOONER– The Washburn County Deer Advisory Council will meet to discuss final antlerless quota recommendations and permit levels for the 2015 deer season. The public is welcome to attend.
The meeting will take place on Monday, April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Spooner Agricultural Research Station, during which the public may speak or submit written comments.
The council’s population objective recommendation suggested increasing the local deer population, and was approved by Wisconsin’s Natural Resources Board on Feb. 25. This population objective will guide deer management decisions for the next three years.
The antlerless quota recommendation is one tool the CDAC will use to achieve the county’s population objective. The final quota recommendation will influence the number of antlerless deer carcass tags available in the county during the 2015 deer hunting season. Antlerless quotas will be reviewed and set each year.
Once a preliminary quota recommendation is proposwed, the public will have an opportunity to review and comment during an online public comment period in April. The public may also comment at any time by contacting CDAC chairman Joe Weiss at 715.635.2209, or by emailing DNRCDACWebMail@Wisconsin.gov.
Additional information on CDAC recommendations, agendas and membership is available at hhtp:/dnr.wi.gov/topic/humt/cdac.html, or email DNRCDACWebMail@Wisconsin.gov with any questions.
