MILWAUKEE — State wildlife biologists invite anyone interested in the status of their local deer herd to attend the annual spring fish and game hearing at 7 p.m. Monday, April 14, in their county.

In the past, early spring herd status meetings were based on groupings of deer management units, with more than 130 of these units across the state bounded primarily by large rivers and highways. In the future, deer will be managed at the county level making it useful to discuss herd status at the Department of Natural Resources annual spring fish and game rules hearings which are held simultaneously on the second Monday in April in each of the 72 counties.

These hearings provide an opportunity for hunters and other interested individuals to hear a herd status report for that county and to learn about new deer hunting rules and regulations. Deer herd management throughout Wisconsin relies heavily on information provided by the public, and at each of these hearings local wildlife staff will be on hand to speak with interested participants regarding deer management in that area. Here are hearing locations in southeastern Wisconsin:

Milwaukee County: Nathan Hale High School Auditorium, 11601W. Lincoln Ave. in West Allis

Kenosha County: Bristol School District #1 Gymnasium, 20121 83rd St. in Bristol

Ozaukee County: Webster Middle School Commons, W75 N624 Wauwatosa Rd. in Cedarburg

Racine County: Union Grove High School, 3433 S. Colony Ave. in Union Grove

Walworth County: Delavan-Darien High School LRG Room 124/125, 150 Cummings St. in Delavan

Waukesha County: Waukesha County Technical College, Richard Anderson Center, 800 Main St. in Pewaukee

These hearings are held in conjunction with the annual Conservation Congress county meetings at which delegates to the congress are elected and meeting participants are asked to cast advisory votes on suggested fish and game rule changes and other matters related to the outdoors. For more information about the hearings and locations type "spring hearings" in the search box at http://dnr.wi.gov

Those unable to attend a local meeting can provide input using an online herd status summary and survey. The survey will be active through April 18. To submit feedback, simply visit http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/hunt/forum.html

Comments and survey results will be compiled and provided to the wildlife biologist responsible for each of Wisconsin's 72 counties.
