Deer hunters in Door County will have their opportunity to speak out on the 2017 Antlerless-Only Seasons being proposed for this fall. The Door County Deer Advisory Council will host a meeting at the Sturgeon Bay High School Commons Monday, April 17 at 7 p.m. The Advisory Council voted unanimously last month to hold the antlerless only hunt. Chairperson Dick Baudhuin says only seven percent of the Doe Bonus Tags distributed last year were redeemed. He notes that the overpopulation of the deer herd is getting worse in Door County.
Baudhuin also encourages hunters to attend the Conservation Congress Door County that will be held at Sturgeon Bay High School tomorrow at 7 p.m where the Earn-A-Buck program will be discussed as an option for the advisory council for the following year. You can find a link to the Wisconsin DNR website where you can provide feedback on the CDAC recommendations until April 13.
