Meeting Wisconsin's Deer Conservation Challenges

November 17, 2021

Location: Online

Join Wisconsin’s Green Fire (WGF) and the Wisconsin Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers (BHA) for a panel discussion on opportunities for Wisconsin to improve the management and conservation of its iconic white-tailed deer herd. Leaders from BHA and member experts from WGF will discuss the stressors and intermingling factors threatening the deer herd and present a vision for better long-term management. Learn about the history of deer management in Wisconsin, how deer browsing can harm forests, farms, and alter ecosystems, what we can do to slow the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), and opportunities for Wisconsin to manage deer through responsible hunting.
