Do you favor raising the wolf population goal from the current level of 350 wolves to 500 wolves?


DNR survey says higher tolerance for wolves

Poll Pic S937 In the Sept. 6 issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News, editor Dean Bortz writes:

Wausau, Wis. — Pressured by an ever-growing number of wolf advocates wishing to increase the state’s population goal to at least 500 animals this fall, the DNR now has in its mitts the very data the agency could use to justify that kind of move.

The results of a DNR-mailed survey released early last week show that – in several respects – state citizens support having a higher number of wolves on the landscape than exist right now – even those living in what’s considered wolf country, or wolf range, as it’s referred to in the survey.

At the same time, sportsmen, farmers, county board members from northern Wisconsin, and any other stakeholder group that has been tracking Wisconsin wolf management, have been telling the DNR that the state’s wolf population goal must remain at its current level – 350 – even as the DNR rewrites its wolf plan this fall.

Calling all hunters, tell us what you see

MADISON - The September 13 archery and crossbow openers mark the beginning of the 2014 deer hunting seasons and the start of the sixth annual Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey, an easy-to-do survey where hunters can record their observations of deer and other wildlife while out hunting.

"The Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey is a fun opportunity for hunters to share their enthusiasm for wildlife while helping our survey efforts," says Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp.

At the end of each year, participants who provide their email address will receive a personalized summary of all recorded wildlife from that season. Participants can access the survey webpage by going to the DNR website and searching keyword Deer Hunter Wildlife. Once there, begin by filling out a tally sheet either electronically or print it from the site.

The DNR asks that hunters record all of their hunting activity throughout the deer season, even if no wildlife sightings were made during a hunt. The survey period ends January 2015. These observations provide the DNR with an index to abundance for many wildlife species. To date, the deer hunters have reported more than 64,000 hunting trips around the state since the Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey began in 2009.

Lastly, don't forget to keep sending in your trail camera photos. The trail camera gallery can be accessed through the Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey webpage. Take a moment to view some of the photos or watch a video. Check back often as the site is updated as soon as new photos are sent in.

Checking station checking for CWD conditions

Chronic Wasting Disease Testing and Landowner Permits



SPOONER, Wis. -- The Department of Natural Resources is offering landowners within the Chronic Wasting Disease Management Zone a permit to harvest adult deer of either sex for CWD testing.SPOONER, Wis. -- The Department of Natural Resources is offering landowners within the Chronic Wasting Disease Management Zone a permit to harvest adult deer of either sex for CWD testing.

Interested landowners, who would like a permit, or more information on the permits, can come to the Spooner DNR Service Center, from 6-7 p.m., Sept. 16.

Landowners may assign hunters to harvest the deer and submit the head. If you have questions or cannot attend the meeting, please call the DNR at 715-635-4025 for a landowner permit.

During the bow and gun deer hunting seasons the DNR -- in cooperation with local businesses -- will continue to collect lymph nodes or deer heads for CWD surveillance testing. If you shoot an adult deer within a 10-mile radius of Shell Lake, please contribute a sample for testing.

The information collected will be used to assess the distribution and intensity of CWD within the local deer herd and may be used in making decisions about responding to the disease in the region.

The DNR's goal is to collect 500 samples within the 10-mile area and the help of landowners and hunters is critical if the agency is going to be successful. The boundaries of the collection area is the land south of Highway 70, west of Highway 53, north of county line and east of county Highway H.

With this year's buck only season structure, there is concern from the Citizen Advisory Team and DNR that the collection goal will not be met, which is why the agency is issuing scientific collector permits to willing landowners to collect heads from all adult deer.

To date there have been no additional positives since one CWD deer was discovered in the fall of 2011 in Washburn County.

Interested landowners, who would like a permit, or more information on the permits, can come to the Spooner DNR Service Center, from 6-7 p.m., Sept. 16.
