Deer hearings coming up statewide

UNDATED (WXPR) -- Deer enthusiasts may want to attend the DNR's spring hearings on fish and game. For the first time, the hearings will also include updates on deer herd status after a grueling winter, as well as hunting regulations.

DNR District Wildlife Supervisor Mike Zeckmeister says it's a good chance to check in with the public.  "It should be a great opportunity to give a quick update on what the deer herd is looking like in their particular county, and also to be able to give a really good briefing on changes to the deer season as a result of the deer trustee report." Zeckmeister says one new change is that deer will be managed at the county level, reducing by almost half the more than 130 units that have been used until now.  "And that has several, both positive and negative - one positive thing is that we're reducing the number of deer management units in the state, so that will make things a little bit easier for folks." Other changes include a new electronic deer registration process.

Hearings will be April 14th in every county in the state. The spring hearings are also a chance for participants to elect delegates to the Conservation Congress and give input on possible fish and game rule changes. The DNR also has more information available online
