Wisconsin DNR seeking input on CWD management plan

The DNR has developed a draft 10-year Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) management plan recognizing its public trust responsibility for managing wildlife and ensuring the health of wildlife populations in the state.

Some proposed recommendations in the plan may have an impact on trail and outdoor enthusiasts. For example, the draft recommends that the expanded gun-deer hunting season structure for 2008 be the basis for hunting seasons through 2012 in the CWD Zone . In 2008, gun deer seasons included October 11-12, 16 - 19, November 22 - 30, December 1-14, 24 - 31 and January 1 - 4. These seasons may impact state park, forest and trail users during popular times of the year for outdoor recreation at such properties as Governor Dodge, Yellowstone Lake, Blue Mound, the Kettle Moraine Southern Unit and others. Your input is needed to help the DNR make informed decisions.

The DNR is taking comments on the draft 10-year CWD management plan through December 13, 2008. For more information and to provide your comments online, please visit the CWD Management Plan webpage.
