Deer rules meetings scheduled

A series of meetings, including one in Barron, are scheduled this month to take comments on the proposed rule package coming out of the Wisconsin Deer Trustee Report.
The report stemmed from an executive order a year ago by Gov. Scott Walker as an effort to evaluate the deer herd management practices of the Department of Natural Resources.
The final report, prepared by James Kroll of Texas, was released in July. This month's meetings review the proposed rules contained in that extensive report.
Meetings in northwest Wisconsin are Thursday, Oct. 24 at Hayward High School from 6-8 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 29 at Crex Meadows in Grantsburg from 7-9 p.m.; Wednesday, Oct. 30 at the Barron County Government Center in Barron from 7-9 p.m.; and Thursday, Oct. 31 at Ladysmith High School from 6-8 p.m.
At the meetings, the Deer Trustee Report proposed rule package will be presented and comments taken.
The rules package covers standard season framework, deer management units, options for units where deer herd decrease is the objective, and an automated deer registration system.
The season framework proposed for 2014 has no major changes. It retains an archery season beginning the second Saturday in September, a weekend youth hunt in early October, the traditional 9-day gun hunt starting the Saturday before Thanksgiving, a muzzleloader hunt over the first half of December, and a 12-day holiday hunt in some areas of the state.
One of the options for a "decrease" management unit includes allowing hunters to take a third buck.
