Deer researcher James Kroll will be on the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point campus Saturday to give an update of the Deer Trustee Report.

According to a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources news release, Kroll will speak in the Dreyfus University Center at 10 a.m. He will provide a midway report on the progress implementing the Deer Trustee Report. The public is welcome to bring questions or comments about the implementation process.

The four “action teams” formed to implement the report have met four times since March and will continue to meet through July. The teams also will be on campus to answer questions.

Eric Lobner, DNR Deer Trustee Report implementation coordinator, said in the news release that the meeting provides an opportunity to incorporate public opinion on the implementation proposals before work is completed.

“It’s all part of the effort to ensure this is a public-driven process with diverse input,” he said.

The four action teams have drafted proposals on how to move forward with 32 of the report’s 49 recommendations that relate directly to enhancing management practices.

In March, a Deer Trustee Implementation survey was distributed to the public as an additional way to collect feedback from the public on multiple aspects of deer management in Wisconsin.

The DNR also has developed a Deer Trustee Report website to be the central location for the public to get information on the report, including documents, presentation materials, proposal drafts, action team updates, opportunities for input and meeting schedules.

The DNR also has hosted monthly live online chats with DNR experts to answer questions and receive comments from the public. These chats will continue through July.

Rules will be drafted by the DNR based on the action team proposals that will be subject to public hearings this fall. The Natural Resources Board will review comments and make decisions on rule adoption in December.
