The Chippewa County Deer Advisory Council will be meeting on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Room 003 at the Chippewa County Courthouse to determine final antlerless deer harvest quota, permit level and season structure recommendations in a meeting that is open to the public.

The council’s preliminary recommendations, formed during its March meeting, are available online for review at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ website by searching “CDAC”, clicking ‘Find’ and selecting Chippewa County. The council considered scientific data and public opinion when developing their preliminary recommendations to establish a quota of 510 antlerless deer in the Forest Zone, 3,050 antlerless deer in the Farmland Zone with 1,600 private and 100 public land bonus antlerless permits available for the Forest Zone and 1,025 public land bonus antlerless tags available for the Farmland Zone.

The council also recommended 1,000 bonus metro antlerless permits with 900 for private lands and 100 for public. These recommendations are expected to maintain the county’s deer herd without an increase or decrease in 2018.

In addition, the council did not recommend an antlerless-only Holiday Hunt for the 2018 season.

Those in attendance will get the chance to give their opinion on these recommendations before the final recommendations from the committee are established.

Once the county’s final quota, permit level and season structure recommendations are established, they will be presented to the DNR following this week’s meeting, then advance to the Natural Resources Board fro approve in May. Once approved, the recommendations will take effect for the 2018 deer hunting season.
