MADISON, Wis. - The Department of Natural Resources has a new big game section chief who will also be the first manager of a new deer population program.
Bob Nack will head up the Deer Management Assistance Program.
The program will work with land owners and interest groups to better manage the state's deer population. It will also closely follow population health by collecting data on diseases like chronic wasting disease.
Nack said he hopes to structure a program that benefits the deer as much as it does people.
"Might be more deer, might be less deer, might be bigger bucks, whatever the goals might be, our focus is going to be managing the deer herd within the habitat that's available," said Nack.
Nack is currently the director of the State Game Farm in Poynette. He officials starts his new position in early October.
