Deer hunter forum set for Walworth County
WALWORTH COUNTY The deer-hunting season might still be months away, but the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is already gearing up with a series of deer hunter forums in March.
The forum for Walworth, Waukesha and Milwaukee counties will be held March 21, from 6-8 p.m. at Wern Valley Sportsman's Club, S36, W29657 Wern Way, Waukesha.
The forum is for Deer Management Units 77B-CWD, 77C-CWD, 77C, 77M.
For more information, call Brian Glenzinski at (262) 574-2116.
The March deer hunter forums will put the public in direct contact with the local biologist responsible for managing the local deer herd, and are intended to both share information about deer management and gather information from hunters about deer where they live, hunt or farm.
The format of meetings will vary, but in many cases the local wildlife biologist will provide a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. Some meetings may also have an open house format, allowing attendees to stop in anytime during the scheduled time.
Anyone interested in the opportunity to discuss local deer management issues, hunting seasons and any other deer topic is encouraged to attend.
If unable to attend a live forum, for the first time this year the public will be able to get unit-specific information and contribute feedback through DNR website. Check the DNR home page for updates.
Wisconsin has long been known as one of the most publicly-driven deer management programs in the country. And in recent years, thousands of volunteers have gotten involved in deer research projects providing data to estimate the size of the herd and sharing personal observations about hunting success, season structure, and the herd itself.
