St. Croix County Deer Advisory Council to hold first meeting March 12
The St. Croix County Deer Advisory Council will meet to review data and form preliminary 2019 antlerless quota, permit and season structure recommendations. The meeting will be 7 p.m. March 12 at the DNR Service Center, 890 Spruce St., in Baldwin.
The public is encouraged to attend to provide insight during the public comment period of the meeting.
CDACs are part of an effort to provide more public input on deer management issues and give stakeholders a greater responsibility in managing local deer numbers. Councils will review and discuss the previous year’s hunting season results and long-term harvest trends, accept public comments and develop preliminary antlerless quota, permit and season structure recommendations. Recommendations will be sent to the Natural Resources Board for approval in May.
Following the March meetings, an online public comment period will take place from April 1-10, with a final council meeting being held on April 16 to allow the council to review public feedback before making final recommendations on the antlerless quota, permit and season structure.
Those unable to attend their county’s meeting can view meeting minutes on the department’s CDAC website at https://dnr.wi.gov/.
