MADISON — A Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources official says it's too late to cancel a four-day antlerless deer hunt in northern Wisconsin as three Republican lawmakers are requesting.

The lawmakers on Friday asked that the hunt beginning Thursday be canceled north of Highway 64. The highway runs across the state from north of Hudson to Marinette.

But DNR big game ecologist Kevin Wallenfang says the process for canceling the hunt takes about six months, per the process established by the Legislature in 2011.

The lawmakers say they want to cancel the hunt due to depleted deer numbers. But Wallenfang says permit numbers were adjusted downward this year knowing the number of deer would be lower.

Sen. Tom Tiffany and Reps. Mary Czaja (CHEYE'-yah) and Rob Swearingen sent the letter.
