While the hunting season is still a half year away, some upcoming events will help planning, starting tonight.
Wildlife Biologists with the Wisconsin DNR will hold a public meeting tonight in Woodruff for those interested in discussing the White Tailed Deer herd. Tonight’s meeting will focus on the herd in Iron, Vilas and Oneida Counties.
The DNR says management throughout Wisconsin depends greatly on information provided by the public. Local wildlife biologists will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the current status of the herd. They will also listen to ideas and observations about local deer numbers and discuss strategies to manage them.
There will be another meeting next week in Merrill targeting Lincoln and Langlade County residents. These meetings are among 11 throughout the Northern Region.
Speaking of hunting, there will be a spring Hunter’s Safety Course offered in the Tomahawk area starting next month, but sign-up is next week at Park City from noon until 8:00pm. The online portion of the class will run in April and classroom and a field day in May.
