SPOONER – The Washburn County Deer Advisory Council will meet to review data and form preliminary 2018 antlerless quota, permit and season structure recommendations. This meeting will be held at Spooner High School choir room on Wednesday, March 14, starting at 7 p.m.
While this is a working meeting of the council, the public is encouraged to attend and will have a formal opportunity 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 previous years’ 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.
Citizens are encouraged to attend their CDAC March meeting and provide comments to the council. Local Department of Natural Resources staff will be on hand to present information and answer any questions.
Following the March meetings, an online public comment period will take place from April 2-12, with a final council meeting being held on April 18 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 dnr.wi.gov.
Washburn County still has vacant seats for transportation and forestry representatives. Qualified individuals are encouraged to visit dnr.wi.gov and search keyword CDAC. An application and more information regarding County Deer Advisory Councils can be found on the CDAC page.
