MADISON, Wis. - State wildlife officials are planning a series of public meetings on how to best implement a Texas researcher's recommendations for improving Wisconsin deer hunting.
The first one is set for March 9 at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The Department of Natural Resources is planning to hold a half-dozen more at the university through July. Attendees will be allowed to join action teams and offer input on which recommendations to implement and how to do it.
Gov. Scott Walker's administration hired James Kroll last year to study deer hunting and how the DNR can improve its relationship with hunters. Kroll came up with 62 recommendations, including holding mini-hunts on private land, setting more localized deer population goals and a more passive approach to handling chronic wasting disease.
