(12/16/13) Wisconsin lawmakers will take a closer look at this year's deer hunt on Wednesday.

  The Assembly Natural Resources Committee will hear from D-N-R officials about the recent nine-day gun season, in which the harvest was down seven-percent.  The panel will also be updated on the efforts to implement the recommendations from "deer czar" James Kroll, which were streamlined by four D-N-R action teams earlier this year.  Lawmakers will also get an update on the state's effort to fight chronic wasting disease in the deer herd.
