MADISON — Three Republican lawmakers are calling on the state Department of Natural Resources to cancel the four-day antlerless deer hunt in northern Wisconsin scheduled to begin Thursday because of a depleted herd.

The lawmakers sent the request Friday asking that the hunt be canceled north of Highway 64. The highway runs across the state from just north of Hudson all the way to Marinette.

A spokesman for DNR did not immediately respond to a request for reaction.

The DNR reports that the northern area of the state saw a 15 percent drop in the overall harvest during the just completed nine-day gun season, the largest decline of any region.

Sen. Tom Tiffany, of Hazelhurst, and Reps. Mary Czaja, of Irma, and Rob Swearingen, of Rhinelander, sent the letter.
