DNR prepares deer hunters for prospects of a lower harvest
Wisconsin deer hunters are gearing up for the gun season which starts a week from next Saturday.
And the DNR is trying to prepare them for the prospect of a lower harvest this year.
Ecologist Keith Warnke says the fawn production has been below-average the past two years. And because the Earn-A-Buck program is virtually gone, he says hunters will take fewer antlerless deer - thus resulting in a lower harvest total.
