EAB works in areas with an overpopulation of does and deer in general, the problem is that the DNR does not have a handle on how to accurately count deer populations and therefore EAB is being implemented in alot of areas it should not be and decimating the deer herds there. It needs to be re-structured or dropped entirely before all of Wi. is barren of whitetail deer!
Couldn't have said it better. I hear that the gov wants to barter with MN. and maybe use their helicopters to count the deer. You think the DNR will be able to count the deer then? Then again they would rather guesstamate!

I'm all for EAB, I'll be at the meeting in my area!!!!!!! I seen nothing but big bucks in the unit I hunt thats EAB, the other thats not EAB, not so much! I also seen plenty of Does in both units!
Obviously you don't hunt in northern Wisconsin. They don't have earn-a-buck up there yet, but then again, a good season is seeing one buck all season, and maybe that many does. Also, the unit I bowhunt in Southern Wisconsin has been put on an EAB watch list for next year. Maybe when the DNR realizes how much the herd is down, which they probobly won't, they will scratch EAB. If you think that you need earn a buck, then you go ahead and shoot a few does. The rest of the state doesn't need it.
No I don't hunt in Northern Wisconsin, I hunt in SE Wisconsin. I speak from what I know and where I hunt and I know from my experience. I for one cannot speak for the "rest of the state" nor do I try. Like I said, in the units I hunt, I'm happy to see there EAB there right now!

EDIT: I hunt Public land 100% of the time!
