Public land is just about shot off and it's only going to get worse. Soon hunters will say enough is enough and stay home. It stands to reason that if deer go on public land and are lucky enough to survive , they will seek out a place where there isn't as much pressure (private land). The counts are best done by hunters and land owners. Just a thought!

I will give the DNR a little credit for at least putting the hunter sighting survey on the web site. But if they actually listen to it is a whole nother question. I also believe that the DNR would make better desicions if they weren't influnenced by politics.The DNR HQ should not be located in the Liberial infested town of Madison.

The head of the DNR also shouldn't be apointed by the Gov. It should be run by a person voted in "BY THE PEOPLE".

when i went with my cousin to register his doe they actually make you fill out more info while registering the deer. if my memory is correct they have you put down public/private land, rate the weather on a scale of 1-10, and the number of deer sighted that day as well. so they are at least making an effort to get more input, who knows if it'll accomplish anything

I just was in the woods every day from the 1rst, to the 15th. I did not see much to talk about this was the worst year I have ever had in the woods. I have lots of corn arround and I am sure that there are deer in the corn but there has always been lots of corn. I saw one good buck cruising at 2pm on the 12th. I had him at 30yards and he was on high allert and ducked my arrow. that was the only buck worth getting excited about. this year the gun season numbers aught to be interesting.

wi deer
 
wisconsin northern part has no deer to wolves and other predators
and all the other parts are going to be overhunted by hunters with a stupid 16 day gun season along with disease, hit by car, predators

i just wi doesn't need all the extra seasons for no reason like a holiday season:rant:

I just hope something is done to bring the numbers up for the deer. Almost every hunter I talked to in bow and gun seasons said they didn't much deer if any.

FINALLY...after years of arrogance...the DNR seems to finally be understanding the anger of hunters who for years have been telling them that their deer estimates have been way, WAY off!

:party0007:

And of course, we hunters who disagreed were told that we needed to trust the "experts" from the DNR instead of believing our own eyes. EAB is gone, and just this past week, the stupid proposal for a 16 day gun season was also shelved. Now if we can get the DNR to listen to hunters from now on there will have been progress. We will see....
