BARABOO – Once again, the Department of Natural Resources will host an Open House here to present information on deer management, herd status and hunting in Columbia, Richland and Sauk Counties.
The Open House will be held on Wednesday, March 10, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the UW Baraboo – Sauk County Campus cafeteria, 1001 Connie Rd., Baraboo.
DNR wildlife biologists Becky Roth, Spring Green, Sara Kehrli, Poynette, and Bill Ishmael, Dodgeville, will focus on the 2009 deer harvest and season summary for deer management units (DMU) 54B, 70, 70B, 70E, 70F, 70G and 71.
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 the three counties and the seven DMUs.
