MADISON - County Deer Advisory Councils are set to prepare final antlerless quota and permit recommendations during the last round of spring meetings from April 20-23, and a public comment period open through April 15 will provide an opportunity to submit feedback.
April CDAC meetings will provide an additional opportunity to provide feedback as councils finalize their recommendations. A meeting schedule and other information can be found at dnr.wi.gov, keyword "CDAC."
In addition to attending council meetings, the public can submit comments directly to their county's CDAC chair or via email to DNRCDACWebMail@wisconsin.gov before the review period ends April 27.
Each council will consider online public input form responses and other public comments, along with assessments from Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources biologists, foresters and law enforcement staff as they develop final recommendations.
Following the April meetings, final antlerless quota recommendations will be presented to the department before they are sent to the Natural Resources Board for approval in May. Approved recommendations will be implemented during the 2015 deer hunting seasons.
