Don’t miss your county’s last conversation about the 2021 deer season before your local deer advisory council makes its final recommendations to the DNR.

May 3-7, each County Deer Advisory Council (CDAC) will meet one more time to go over recommendations on antlerless harvest goals, holiday hunts in farmland zones, public/private land quotas and extended archery seasons.

County-specific online meeting dates, watch and call-in options can be found here.

Each county in Wisconsin has a County Deer Advisory Council to provide input and recommendations to the department on deer management within their county. Each CDAC is made up of representatives from different interest groups that provide recommendations to the DNR on deer management within their county.

Councils work with local DNR staff to schedule meetings, provide community outreach and an opportunity for public input, review population data and deer impacts on forests and agriculture, develop recommendations on county population objectives and create annual antlerless harvest quotas.

Members review county-level population data and deer impacts on forests and agriculture, develop three-year recommendations on county population objectives and create annual antlerless harvest goals.

The CDAC recommendations and DNR recommendations will be presented to the Natural Resources Board for approval in June.

More information about CDAC population objective recommendations, agendas and membership is available here. Additional questions can also be sent via email to [email protected]
