The Douglas County Deer Advisory Council will meet Wednesday, March 20, to review data and form preliminary 2019 deer hunting quotas. The public meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. at the Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave.
County deer advisory committees held across the state provide local input to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on issues such as how many antlerless deer permits should be issued in the county. They are intended to provide more public input on deer management and give stakeholders a greater responsibility in managing local deer numbers. Local DNR staff will be on hand to present information and answer any questions.
Councils 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
Following the March county meetings, an online public comment period will take place from April 1-10, with a final council meeting set for April 17. Final recommendations will be sent to the state Natural Resources Board for approval in May.
