LANCASTER – Once again, the Department of Natural Resources will host an Open House here to present information on deer management, herd status and hunting in Grant County.
The Open House will be held on Monday, March 8, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Grant County Youth and Ag Building, 916 East Elm St., Lancaster.
DNR wildlife biologists Dan Goltz, Boscobel, and Bill Ishmael, Dodgeville, will focus on the 2009 deer harvest and season summary for deer management units (DMU) 73A, 73B, 73D, 73B-CWD and 73E-CWD.
They will also show a video covering updates on deer management, hunter involvement in deer management, new research initiatives, communications and the DNR’s proposed chronic wasting disease (CWD) management plan.
The biologists emphasize that the Open House is aimed primarily for those persons who hunt, reside or are interested in the deer herd status of Grant County and the five DMUs.
