The Vernon County Deer Advisory Council (CDAC) will meet to discuss preliminary antlerless quota recommendations and permit levels for the 2015 deer season. The public is invited.
The meeting will take place March 25 at 6 p.m. at the Westby Rod & Gun Club in Timber Coulee (E7076 Co. Road P, Westby), during which the public may speak or submit written comments.
The council’s population objective recommendation suggested maintaining the local deer population, and was approved by Wisconsin’s Natural Resources Board on Feb. 25. This population objective will guide deer management decisions for the next three years.
The antlerless quota recommendation is one tool the CDAC will use to achieve the county’s population objective. The final quota recommendation will influence the number of antlerless deer carcass tags available in the county during the 2015 deer hunting season. Antlerless quotas will be reviewed and set each year.
Once a preliminary quota recommendation is proposed, the public will have the opportunity to review and comment during an online public comment period in April. The public may also comment at any time by contacting CDAC chair Jason Leis at 608-606-0540 or by emailing DNRCDACWebMail@Wisconsin.gov.
