What a week it has been for the DNR.
Just last week the DNR was under fire, no pun intended, from Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker. Now a group a legislators are requesting that this weeks antlerless deer hunt be suspended.
According to a new release posted by the Associated Press, 22 legislators made their request in a letter to the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board. The letter dated last Wednesday was released to the media Friday, December 7th.
With a poor harvest in last months Wisconsin nine-day gun season, concerns are mounting and bringing out fire from Wisconsins top brass. Figures from the DNR show that Wisconsin hunters harvested fewer than 200,000 deer in comparison to recent years where 320,000 to 350,000 deer were harvested.
The antlerless-deer is scheduled for this week, Dec. 10-13.
