DNR Asking People to Report Dead Deer

(1/31/14) The state D-N-R is asking people to report any dead deer they find.  

The cold-and-snowy winter is expected to take its toll on the deer herd, just like it did a year ago when winter conditions dragged into May.  It resulted in lower deer populations, and hunters were given their fewest permits for antlerless deer since the 1990's.  Now, the D-N-R is hoping people will report dead animals, so they can get better estimate of the deer population.  They'll use those numbers to determine hunter permits for does this fall.  The D-N-R says it anticipates either no antlerless permits -- or extremely-limited permits -- in northern Wisconsin where doe populations have been small for some time.
