It's a whopping 184 pages and - as advertised - doesn't offer any specific recommendations, but the Interim Report of the Wisconsin White-tailed Deer Trustee and Review Committee provides an interesting summary of issues and background on Wisconsin deer management.
The report was released Wednesday to the media. A link to the full report is found here.
Gov. Scott Walker created the position of Wisconsin white-tailed deer trustee last year to perform an "independent, science-based review" of the state's deer management program.
James Kroll, a university professor from Nacogdoches, Texas was named deer trustee in October. He then added Gary Alt, former Pennsylvania deer manager, and David Guynn, retired professor from Clemson University and member of the board of directors of the Quality Deer Management Association, to the review panel.
The contract is being supervised by the Department of Administration. The $150,000 for the review is coming out of the Fish and Wildlife account of the Department of Natural Resources.
kinda like reading a service manual for a ford or a chevy. the basic principles are the same whether it's bowtie or blue oval. pa or wisc, the same principals apply. probably going to be some disappointed and angry hunters in wisc too, just like here.
