INSTANT SURVEY VOTE ON – POLL s650
Do you expect to see big bucks when you hunt?

Big bucks in your vision?

pollpicSome critics say the TV deer hunting shows that feature hunters passing up multiple bucks most of us would shoot and then only taking monster bucks that will score high enough to make the Boone & Crockett records create unrealistic expectations.

Hunters who watch these shows, they say, look at their own hunting experiences as inferior because most hunters do not have access to land managed for trophy animals. These shows, the critics say, contribute to the growing dissatisfaction among deer hunters, such as that manifested in Wisconsin in recent years.

This unrest in Wisconsin has led to the appointment by Gov. Scott Walker of Dr. James Kroll as the state’s “Deer Trustee,” charged with reviewing the state’s deer management program and coming up with suggestions for improving it.

Take the poll and let us know your Point Of View.

DNR launches YouTube channel to showcase outdoor videos

MADIDON – Wake up to Wild Wednesdays!

news1The Department of Natural Resources has launched a YouTube channel, WIDNRTV, and plans to post stories Wednesday mornings.

The videos will showcase Wisconsin’s wildlife, outdoor recreation and natural resources and the DNR staff, organizations, citizens and businesses who protect, restore and enhance those resources.

“There are so many compelling stories to tell about the great outdoors, our economy and our environment,” says Laurel Steffes, director of DNR’s communications program. “We’re excited to share these stories with more people through YouTube.”

People with YouTube accounts can subscribe to the channel to have the videos automatically show up in their YouTube account onWild Wednesdays.

People who don’t have or want an account can search for WIDNRTV on YouTube or a search engine to reach the channel. Or go toDNR’s home page, and click on the YouTube logo in the upper left-hand corner.

The YouTube channel is DNR’s latest tool to connect with Wisconsin residents and visitors. Last month, DNR launched its firstFacebook page and Twitter account and laid out plans for special coverage on the DNR website.

Hunters can help the hungry through venison donation program during December hunt

Venison donation program assists thousands of needy families

MADISON –Wisconsin hunters can help those in need by participating in this year’s early December Antlerless hunt, which will take place from Dec. 8 through 11.

newspic2“This is a wonderful opportunity where Wisconsin hunters can enjoy additional hunting opportunities with friends and family, while helping those in need,” said Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp.

The Venison Donation program has provided high quality protein to thousands of needy families all across Wisconsin since 2000. In ten years more than 77,000 hunter-harvested deer have been processed into more than 3.4 million pounds of venison.

It’s easy to donate and costs nothing. Find a participating processor and go hunting! For donating in the CWD zone please view the CWD donation program.

“The program is a winner for families, hunters an wildlife conservation,” said Stepp.

Hunters get to enjoy their sport knowing that the venison won’t be wasted; food pantries say it literally flies out of the freezers; and wildlife managers welcome the effect antlerless harvest has on maintaining healthy and balanced deer populations in areas where the deer herd is well over established population goals.

The antlerless deer hunt from Dec. 8 to 11 in regular units is open to hunters with a valid antlerless deer tag for the unit in which they are hunting. Regular unit antlerless tags are still available for many units at $12 each. In heard control units, hunters can purchase as many $2 antlerless tags as they wish. Many deer management units still have antlerless deer carcass tags available.

More hunting opportunities!

The muzzleloader hunt, the December statewide antlerless deer hunt, the holiday hunt in the CWD management zone and the late archery hunt are going on right now or coming up soon.

“We understand there are parts of the state where hunters have seen fewer deer this year,” said Kurt Thiede, DNR division of lands administrator. “This request is being made for areas where hunters are observing more deer, such as areas within the CWD and Herd Control Units.”
