10-22-13 deer report public hearings

Public hearings are set on proposed rules regarding implementation of the Deer Trustee report.  The DNR will hold public hearings from October 22nd to October 31st at 35 locations statewide.  DNR Deer Trustee Report implementation coordinator Eric Lobner says the report includes 62 recommendations.  Lobner says the goal of the report’s recommendations is to enhance deer management in Wisconsin.  Lobner says the bottom line is Wisconsin is a top five deer hunting state in the country.  "There's no doubt about that.  You can look at all of the Boone and Crockett, the Pope and Young record books...Wisconsin when you look at the record books it stands out,"  Lobner told WFDL news.  "Wisconsin glows when you consider the state on a national scale."  The official comment period will run from October 14th to November 8th.  If you are unable to attend a public hearing you can complete the survey and submit comments online at the DNR website.
