Beginning today give feedback on local County Deer Advisory Council preliminary deer population objectives 

Online survey runs through Sept. 22  - DNR News

Beginning today, you can review and give feedback on recommendations made by your local County Deer Advisory Council (CDAC). These preliminary recommendations cover county deer population objectives for the next three years and potential changes to Deer Management Unit (DMU) boundaries.

The online public comment period regarding these recommendations will begin after noon today and run through Sept. 22, 2017.

Preliminary deer population objective recommendations received from the councils will be to increase, decrease or maintain the size of the local herd over the next three years. Changes to DMU boundaries will influence the area where antlerless tags may be used within the county and season structure options in those areas. Final recommendations will go into effect in 2018 and will guide annual antlerless quota recommendations for the next three years.

Preliminary population objectives and DMU boundary recommendations for each CDAC will be posted online at by searching keyword "CDAC." After reviewing the recommendations, the public can enter opinions and comments into a web-based survey here.

Once the online public comment period has closed, CDACs will receive feedback from the surveys to consider when developing their final recommendations. Recommendations will be finalized at public meetings in early October. Public comments are also welcome as the DNR reviews the recommendations in November and can be submitted through email at
