Wisconsin Deer Trustee and Review Committee Release Final Report

In their final report, Wisconsin’s White-Tailed Deer Review Committee, consisting of Dr. James Kroll, Dr. David Guynn and Dr. Gary Alt, recommended many significant changes in Wisconsin’s deer management program.
In the report released to the public on July 9, they suggested the state implement a Deer Management Assistance Program similar to what is done in 20 other states.
They also called for a more passive approach to CWD management in southern Wisconsin and the continued use of the Sex-Age-Kill model for determining deer populations on a statewide basis, rather than in individual deer management units.
The 135-page report offered recommendations in these areas:
  • population management
  • hunting regulations
  • seasons and bag limits
  • predator studies and management
  • chronic wasting disease
  • harvest data collection
  • herd health and productivity
  • habitat
  • people
  • DNR research and technical publications
  • Conservation Congress
  • and DNR personnel
  • A seven-page Executive Summary lists these recommendations, which are spelled out in the full report.
