The Door County Deer Advisory Board will meet for the third time this year Monday before making formal recommendations to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Last year the board reversed an earlier recommendation that would have called for an antlerless deer hunt for 2017. Dick Buidhuin of the Deer Advisory Board says this year the only new recommendation planned is an extension of the bow hunting season.
The plan again for this fall is to have each license holder for the gun hunting receive five free antler-less bonus tags with another holiday hunt in December. The Deer Advisory Board was put in place four years ago by the state legislature to give the public more input for deer management, according to Baudhuin. Monday’s meeting will be held at the Door County Government Center on Nebraska Street starting at 7 pm.
