Electronic deer and bear registration will provide additional convenience to hunters while keeping time-honored traditions alive

MADISON -- After a successful 2014 pilot program, deer and bear hunters in Wisconsin will be able to electronically register their harvest during 2015 hunting seasons.

Electronic registration will provide additional convenience and reduced cost for hunters and will also give the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources instantaneous access to harvest data. Electronic registration is currently in use for Wisconsin's turkey and goose hunting seasons, and agencies in other states have reported high hunter satisfaction through electronic registration for deer and other big game.

While walk-in registration was the only option available for many hunters in the past, all deer and bear will be registered electronically in 2015. In-person registration is expected to continue to be available in many locations throughout Wisconsin, and will also use the new system.

"We are encouraging local businesses to volunteer their services as a registration station to help give hunters an opportunity to continue their traditions," said Kevin Wallenfang, DNR deer ecologist. "Any business can offer registration services if they are willing to provide a phone or computer for public use, or assist a hunter with registration. We have worked with stakeholders and will continue to offer on our website a list of businesses that will offer in-person registration with the new system."

In 2014, 14,000 hunters were selected to register deer by telephone or online and test a new electronic registration system. Those hunters registered more than 10,000 deer electronically during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloader, and gun deer seasons.

News #1   Application deadline to host a gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities is June 1

MADISON -- Sponsors and landowners interested in hosting a gun hunt for deer hunters with disabilities are reminded that the application deadline is June 1. The 2015 disabled deer hunt will be held Oct. 3-11.

An online application is available on the Department of Natural Resources website, by searching keywords "disabled deer hunt." For a physical copy of the application, please contact Adam Murkowski, DNR assistant big game ecologist, at 608-261-7588.

In 2014, 88 sponsors worked closely with landowners to help create deer hunting opportunities for more than 90 disabled hunters. In all, over 78,000 acres of land was made available to hunters with disabilities. Sponsors are encouraged to own at least 60 acres of land and are required to allow interested disabled hunters to use their land during the October hunt. Interested hunters are encouraged to contact sponsors as soon as possible.

News #2  Wildfire Community Preparedness Day is Saturday, May 2

MADISON -- If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes - a saying as true in Wisconsin as it is anywhere where wildfires have their own seasons.

"Our conditions in the spring can go from wet and snowy one day to dry and windy the next," said Jolene Ackerman, wildfire preparedness specialist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. "This range in conditions can often leave people confused as to how spring can be prime wildfire season in our state."

Clearing confusion and promoting community-wide projects to reduce wildfire risk is the reason for National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day.

Ackerman said the May 2 national day is to bring awareness to the high fire risk in spring and to teach people how to live compatibly with nature when they live or own property in wildland areas. Homeowners are encouraged to join others throughout the nation to take little actions that will make big changes when it comes to Wisconsin's wildfire season.

Wisconsin's springs are marked by an abundance of dead vegetation that was last year's leaves, pine needles, grass, and food crops. "This dead vegetation cannot hold moisture and once it's dry, it will easily ignite and carry fire," she said.
