The rules have changed, but the tradition remains. What will changes in 2014 mean for your deer season?
• New unit and zone boundaries will encourage stakeholder and public input on a local level, provide a local level of responsibility for actions, provide consistency in deer seasons from year to year, and retain the ability to manage most units between habitat types.
• New seasons, licenses and tag options will offer new opportunities for hunters while improving the consistency of licensing and tagging across the state and between user groups; offer seasons that uphold the tradition of deer hunting while fulfilling biological management needs.
• New methods for deer registration will provide additional convenience to hunters and efficient harvest data access to DNR scientists and law enforcement, while saving money, beginning in 2015. This year, please register deer as you have in the past.
• New methods of setting quotas will give the public in each county (through County Deer Advisory Councils) an opportunity for hands-on deer management based on the issues that most affect local people and ecosystems.
